About Vista Maria
Vista Maria’s mission is to heal Michigan’s victimized girls and women with best-practice treatment programs designed to meet their unique needs while serving other vulnerable children and families within Southeast Michigan. Vista Maria’s success is based on the philosophy of Saint Mary Euphrasia Pelletier, who founded the Sisters of the Good Shepherd – the community of women who founded Vista Maria. Her compassion, empathy, and interest in helping marginalized women and children evolved out of her own experience as a troubled adolescent. Therapy at Vista Maria is designed around each girl’s individual experiences and needs. This encompasses a variety of activities that address the physical, spiritual, intellectual, and recreational well-being of the girls. For more information, please visit www.vistamaria.org.
