Healing Starts Here

Thousands of Kentucky’s children are in crisis, removed from their homes because they have been abused or neglected. For many, Maryhurst is the only answer. Recognized as one of the few agencies in the country capable of caring for teenage girls who are among the most traumatized victims, Maryhurst helps those who have nowhere else to turn for healing and hope.
The need for Maryhurst’s services today is greater than ever. With Kentucky leading the nation in child fatalities due to abuse and neglect, more children are desperate for the hope and healing only Maryhurst can provide. However, given the challenging economic climate and far fewer state funds available to care for the children removed from their families, we rely on community support more than ever.
