ADDRESSING THE ISSUES OF

EMOTIONAL AND

PHYSICAL ABUSE

At the Los Angeles Orphanage Guild (LAOG), we believe every child deserves a safe place—a place where they’ll be loved, nurtured, secured, educated and prepared to not only survive, but also thrive. This is Maryvale. LAOG’s work exclusively supports Maryvale—the only residential treatment center of its kind in Greater Los Angeles—to ensure it can continue to provide this “home” for the orphaned, abused and neglected children in the foster care system under its care. Please support the children of Maryvale today. Be a Friend of LAOG and donate now.
