Since 1856 Maryvale has cared for orphaned, abused and neglected children, evolving into a social welfare organization, nurturing traumatized youth in the foster care system. Maryvale's Mission, inspired by the compassionate service of our Vincentian Founders and the charism of the Daughters of Charity, is to heal, empower and educate children and families to instill hope for a more fulfilling future. We do this by providing residential, educational, mental health and community-based services in an environment of dignity, love and respect.
Maryvale's Core Values
Maryvale’s heritage is reflected by its Vincentian Core Values. In 1633 St. Vincent de Paul reached out to assist those in need through simple acts of kindness. His efforts and those of St. Louise de Marillac ultimately developed into the values embodied by the Daughters of Charity. Today, Maryvale keeps those values alive by providing compassionate and nurturing service to some of society’s most vulnerable young people.
