About Us

Martin de Porres Group Homes (MDPGH) is a nonprofit that was established by the De La Salle Christian Brothers to conduct residential and preventive programs for youngsters. Our programs are inspired by Christian values, but sensitive to other religious and cultural traditions. The ultimate goal of MDPGH is to assist youths in adjusting to their families and society so that the risk of committing a juvenile or criminal offense, having to either go into residential or foster care, or any higher level of care is significantly minimized.We make a difference by Touching Hearts, Transforming Lives, and Instilling Hope in the youths entrusted to our care, so they can reach their full potential.

Our residents are adolescent males from the five boroughs of New York City. As a result of serious behavioral difficulties, or extreme family challenges these young men have been either voluntarily placed or have been placed with MDPGH by the New York City Family Court. These circumstances have impeded their success in society and in their home life. MDPGH provides a comprehensive program with concentrated services in clinical services, family therapy, educational, and community support services for these residents who are in need of a more structured, supervised and disciplined environment.
