An unwavering mission to help each child heal and embrace their individual worth.
At Vista Maria we know that it takes a Fearless Heart to overcome the challenges of abuse and trauma and move forward. An unwavering courage, limitless love and positive vision that was embodied in 1883 by our founder Sister Mary Euphrasia, and carried on today by each one of us. What began as a home for girls and women in need has evolved to encompass mental health services, foster care and adoption, independent living, and secure care for the survivors of human trafficking, plus education, after school care and advocacy for the welfare of children.
We’re visionary in our approach and unrelenting in our quest to provide the best care and support for vulnerable children and families. Our boundless belief in every person’s worth propels us to action, pursuing new ways to serve our community. Vista Maria invites anyone with courage, love and vision to join us and ignite a life of possibility.
We foster restorative relationships and deliver innovative care, treatment, and education so that vulnerable youth and families believe in their worth, heal and build the skills for success.
All children, families and communities achieve success through continuous learning and relationships that promote personal, professional and family well-being.
Driven by courage, love, and vision, Vista Maria puts our Core Values into practice every single day. They inform how we approach our work and relationships with our young people, families, staff, and community.
