Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

There’s a child safety crisis in Kentucky. Right now, there are thousands of children living in alternative placements after being removed from their families as a result of abuse or neglect. It’s an all-time high that’s expected to continue rising, propelled by increasing problems of drug addiction and family instability.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We work together with kids and families to build resilience and a sense of worth. Because we believe each child is inherently worthy of life, we’ve made a promise to be attentive to the messages and humanity behind each behavior, negative or otherwise. Our relationships with kids and families are partnerships. We treat survivors with respect and trust them as the experts of their own lived experience. We work to transform the lives of nearly 500 children and their families every single year.

We care for girls the others turn away.
We're the only nonprofit in the state serving adolescent girls that the Cabinet for Health and Family Services has diagnosed as being severely traumatized by abuse.

We bring out the best in students the system has failed.
After 180 days with Maryhurst, 85% of students show improvement in reading skills, and 65% show an increase in math scores.

We offer stability that leads to permanency.
90% of girls who successfully complete our programs are placed in less-restrictive settings like group homes or foster families.

We save public funds - the alternatives are three times as costly.
The total cost to care for children in our residential program is $320/day. The hospitals that house peers living with similar trauma can cost up to $1000/day.

We are innovators and leaders in compassion.
We were the first agency in the state to fully adopt trauma-informed care. Instead of asking “what’s wrong with you?” we ask “what happened to you and how do we help?”

Youth and Family Counseling

When families first feel signs of conflict, Maryhurst Renewal counselors are there to work through issues before they become unmanageable. For kids and families facing crisis, we offer compassionate and individualized care. Renewal provides one-on-one, group and family counseling in office-, home- or school-based settings.

Residential Programs

Our residential programs provide a place of healing and recovery for girls whose histories of trauma — the most severe cases in our entire state — have left them without a safe home. As they prepare for transition to more permanent, family-based settings, girls in our residential program live, go to school, and meet with therapists onsite.

Foster Care and Adoption

Maryhurst Embrace Foster Care connects kids and families, and we’re especially dedicated to finding homes for children at high risk of being forgotten. Our clinicians train foster families to provide consistent, nurturing, trauma-informed care. We work to ensure that families feel supported and kids remain on the path to a more positive future.

Community and Transitional Living

Preparing to live independently can be difficult, especially for older youth who are soon to ‘age out’ of the system while still actively mending from unconscionable abuse. Based out of two community-focused homes in the Louisville area, Maryhurst’s transitional programs are often the right in-between step after residential treatment but before independent living.

We have been leading the way for 175 years in innovating the way we treat vulnerable children in Kentucky. We were the first organization to adopt Trauma-Informed Care techniques, now a national standard, the first private agency in Kentucky to create a foster and adoption program, and we now are leading the way in how we treat the most highly traumatized young women from across the entire state.

We plan to continue to trail blaze and find new, more effective ways of taking care of the most vulnerable among us through a growing community based treatment program, expanding our ability to provide independent living services, and helping the state to transform our foster and adoption services.
