MARYGROVE provides a diverse range of residential programs to children and young adults. The services range from on-campus residential cottages to a program where residents learn to live independently in their own off-campus apartment.
The heart of the treatment program is six on-campus residential units, called cottages. The focal point of MARYGROVE’s campus and programs, the cottages accept residents according to age, gender and treatment diagnosis. Children live in small family-like groups, where cottage staff promotes the development and practice of self-control, cooperation and responsibility.
Through daily cottage living, residents are encouraged to take responsibility for their own behavior. As residents achieve greater levels of responsibility and personal growth, they are allowed a greater degree of personal decision making and independence.
Sequoia House is a transitional services group home for up to 12 young women ages 17 to 21. Transitional living is the emphasis of Sequoia House, where residents learn life skills that equip them for independent living and self sufficiency. The young women are also encouraged to obtain employment, complete their education and become involved in the surrounding community.
Sycamore House, Clinton Cottage and Arbor House are therapeutic foster homes located close to the main campus. The residents of each house live with a single permanent house parent in a family environment. Under the house parent’s supervision they attend school and are encouraged to participate in extracurricular activities or hold down part-time jobs. Residents continue to receive individualized treatment on the MARYGROVE campus.
Sequoia Apartment Services is a supervised apartment program for young adults between the ages of 16 and 21. These young adults live in apartments off the MARYGROVE campus. The program provides financial, medical and emotional support to the residents as they learn to live independently. Each resident must either continue his/her education or obtain a full-time job. They are supervised with an eye toward their goals.
Drury House, which opened in February 2006, is a transitional services group home for up to twelve young men ages 16 to 21. In this group environment, residents learn life skills that will equip them for self sufficiency and independent living outside the institution. The young men are also encouraged to obtain employment, complete their education and become involved in the surrounding community.
