We are driven by courage, love, and vision to help girls, youth and their families realize a life beyond trauma and ignite a life of possibility. We are fearless in our commitment to keep them safe and to make them strong, and our courageous compassion finds new ways to bring wholeness and possibility to those who need it most.
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.
