Standards for Charity Accountability
Marygrove meets the 20 Standards for Charity Accountability.
"To provide quality mental health services to severely disturbed children, young adults, and their families who are economically disadvantaged."
Also Known As: Child Center Marygrove
Marygrove is one of the largest therapeutic residential treatment programs in Missouri. In 2014, it served 1,338 children and young adults who were struggling with behavioral, emotional, or other mental health issues, often as a result of abuse, neglect and/or other early childhood traumas. The programs offered by Marygrove are: residential treatment (long and short-term); an on-campus special education school; transitional living (includes group homes and therapeutic foster homes); independent living (in off-site, scattered apartments); overnight crisis care crisis nursery), and services to homeless youth. The desired outcome for each child is to learn how to manage their mental health condition and develop life skills so they can move to a less restrictive environment-with family, a responsible relative, a foster or adoptive home, or to live independently. A treatment plan utilizing customized individual, group, family, and recreation therapy is created, and their progress is monitored by case managers.
