Marygrove’s mission is to provide quality mental health services to severely disturbed children, young adults and their families who are economically disadvantaged.
Marygrove has been taking care of children in need since it was established in 1849 as the House of Good Shepherd in the city of St. Louis. As a result of its move to its current location in Florissant in 1969 and merger with the Child Center of our Lady in 2005, Marygrove was able to expand programming that helps children recover from profound emotional duress resulting from histories of abuse, neglect and other early childhood traumas. Today, Marygrove is one of the largest therapeutic residential treatment programs in the state with demonstrated success helping children with particularly complex mental health issues and those with a history of failed placements at other agencies. Through its broad continuum of programs including therapeutic residential treatment, foster care, transitional and independent living programs and crisis care, Marygrove helps over 1,000 young people each year move toward a brighter future.
