Hope and Empowerment

Maryvale is a licensed Short-Term Residential Therapeutic Program (STRTP) serving girls and young women, ages 6-21, removed from their homes by the Department of Children and Family Services or referred by the Department of Probation. Most girls in residence at Maryvale have been profoundly traumatized by prior abuse, abandonment or neglect and suffer from the effects of numerous failed placements in foster care facilities.  

Maryvale and the Department of Children and Family Services work together to assist residents who typically have severe emotional disturbances and have been referred to Maryvale by the courts or government agencies because they require a higher level of professional intervention than most children and youth within the foster care system.

The specialized services offered include a recovery program; education support; screening, education and intervention for commercial sexual exploitation; and enrichment and Wellness activities.
