Caring for Children
Founded by the Daughters of Charity of St. Vincent de Paul, Maryvale is the oldest, continuously-operating agency in Los Angeles for over 162 years. Maryvale provides loving and nurturing care for children -- a commitment we have been keeping for more than a century.
Maryvale's Mission, inspired by the compassionate service of our Vincentian Founders, faithful to Catholic Social Teaching rooted in the gospel of Jesus Christ and the charism of the Daughters of Charity, is to heal, empower and educate children and families to instill hope for a more fulfilling future. We do this by providing residential, educational, mental health and community-based services in an environment of dignity, love and respect.
Maryvale cares for 72 girls and boys ages 6 to 18 who have been profoundly affected by abuse, abandonment or neglect, and suffer from the effects of numerous failed placements in foster care.
Community-based services, programs, and mental health support for at-risk and struggling children and families.
