Overview

Self-reported by organization

Marygrove gives children roots to heal and grow through
comprehensive treatment programs that inspire children and adolescents to take
responsibility for their own actions. Combating social tribulations since
1849 they now utilize evidence-based treatment that is delivered by master's
level therapists throughout six different cottages on the main campus.  Complete psychiatric and healthcare is also
provided.  The treatments are intended to
help children and adolescents attain a level of normalcy that will allow them
to function in a positive role in society. 
The transitional program is designed for young men and women ages 16 to
21. This program's emphasis is to help residents learn life skills that equip
them for independent living and self sufficiency.  In 2010-2011 Marygrove served a total of 575
people from the ages of 0-21 for a combined total of 49,308 days of care; they
also served 394 families through outreach and therapy sessions. Marygrove
currently serves 170 children on its main campus.  For more information visit the website at: http://marygrovechildren.org/main/(http://marygrovechildren.org/main/)
