Saint Teresa of Calcutta Home

St. Teresa of Calcutta for girls provides clinical care and life skills education for young women ages 14 to 18 who have been released from the custody of the juvenile justice system. These transitional, residential home-like settings help foster social, coping, interpersonal and vocational skills. The goal is to successfully transition participants to return home and to become productive members of their communities, free from further delinquency.

What we Offer

An important element of Maryville’s transitional program is the collaborative structure in which staff, youth, the youth’s family and community work together to create a discharge plan to minimize regression and incarceration.

Family therapy is an important aspect of the program. Goals are established to support a youth’s transition back to their home while eliminating future involvement with law enforcement and allowing parents to care for their children again. Daytime and overnight visits are important steps in their rehabilitation as well as supporting them when they begin using the skills they have learned in the program.

Maryville staff utilize the ARC (Attachment/ Regulation/Competency) Theoretical Framework to address the mental health issues of youth involved in the criminal justice system. Youth receive numerous opportunities to build meaningful, positive relationships in a safe environment. This approach prepares them for a better future while they gain various new skills that contribute to positive outcomes.
