Maryhurst relies on the generosity of various foundations, corporations and individuals in our community to help us meet our children’s needs. Each year, we must raise more than $2 million in private funds to ensure our youth are getting the very best care. Because we are frequently asked what our most pressing needs are, we have outlined them below:
Therapeutic And Medical Services
By making an unrestricted donation, your gift helps us provide the vital one-on-one therapy and basic medical services our children so desperately need. Our youth come from backgrounds of severe abuse and neglect which has left them with incredible emotional disabilities. Many also face medical complications directly related to their past mistreatment. Our goal is to care for their minds and bodies as we prepare them for a better future.
Health And Wellness Activities
Thanks to many generous donors, Maryhurst opened the Kosair Charities Wellness Center on the Dorsey Campus in 2007. The building provides our children with a wonderful facility in which to play, exercise and learn various skills such as cooking, sewing, etc. Ongoing donations are needed to help us provide these many activities, including art and music classes, healthy lifestyle programs, etc.
Buildings And Grounds
Maryhurst’s main campus on Dorsey Lane was built in the early 1970s and serves as home and school to 68 teenage girls every day. Needless to say, we always have a list of projects that need to be completed in the multiple buildings on this campus – from painting and repairs to new furniture, appliances and landscaping.
We have many opportunities for individuals to get involved with Maryhurst. Please consider visiting our campus so that you can take a tour, meet our children, and see first-hand the many lives being changed here. For more information, or to schedule a tour, please contact:
