Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Residential Treatment, Outpatient Counseling

Maryhurst's purpose is to prevent abuse, restore hope, and empower survivors. Our programs include the following:

The Euphrasia residential treatment program (on the Lambeth Campus). Maryhurst is the only non-profit agency in KY contracted for serving adolescent girls with the highest level of need due to severe trauma or abuse and neglect. These children would be sent out of state for care without our services.

Treasure Home is a therapeutic group home for older girls with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Maryhurst serves adolescent girls in a psychiatric residential treatment cottage on the Brooklawn campus.

Renewal is our therapeutic community-based program that provides intensive services and outpatient counseling to children of all ages and their families. Our focus is on those living in Louisville's south and west neighborhoods.

Population(s) Served
Women and girls
Children and youth
People with disabilities

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jul 01 - Jun 30

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
