Marymound has two semi-secure living units on its premises in Winnipeg, each providing a home-like, nurturing environment for up to six girls each. A young person at risk can benefit from the structured program, with an emphasis on promoting healthy, age-appropriate activities and interaction.
The setting of each unit is modern, well-equipped and provides a therapeutic milieu that includes counseling, support and psychiatric consultation. Staff provide extensive evening recreation programming, including community activities as treatment progresses – and all young people residing in Marymound secure units can attend Marymound School.
The young people who come to Marymound are often struggling to overcome multiple challenges including abuse, family breakdown, addiction, mental health issues and learning disabilities. Staff are experienced and skilled at working with young people with high needs requiring an exceptional level of care.
Marymound strives to offer the best chance for success to young people needing treatment-based care. With a wide range of placement options, youth can move on to other Marymound programs as their development progresses.
Marymound knows how important family can be in the lives of the young people in care. Family connections are maintained through regular contact including visits home for weekends and holidays whenever possible. Supportive family counseling is available when it is needed.
Spiritual and Cultural Care
All youth in Marymound’s care have access to the Indigenous Cultural Program.
