We first opened our doors in 1843 as a home for girls who’d been mistreated and cast aside. As we grew into our community and learned more about the needs of Kentucky’s most vulnerable kids and families, we added programs designed to prevent abuse, restore hope, and empower survivors.
When families first feel signs of conflict, Maryhurst Renewal counselors are there to work through issues before they become unmanageable. For kids and families facing crisis, we offer compassionate and individualized care. Renewal provides one-on-one, group and family counseling in office-, home- or school-based settings.
Our residential programs provide a place of healing and recovery for girls whose histories of trauma — the most severe cases in our entire state — have left them without a safe home. As they prepare for transition to more permanent, family-based settings, girls in our residential program live, go to school, and meet with therapists onsite.
Maryhurst Embrace Foster Care connects kids and families, and we’re especially dedicated to finding homes for children at high risk of being forgotten. Our clinicians train foster families to provide consistent, nurturing, trauma-informed care. We work to ensure that families feel supported and kids remain on the path to a more positive future.
Preparing to live independently can be difficult, especially for older youth who are soon to ‘age out’ of the system while still actively mending from unconscionable abuse. Based out of two community-focused homes in the Louisville area, Maryhurst’s transitional programs are often the right in-between step after residential treatment but before independent living.
