Vista Maria is one of Michigan’s oldest and largest private, non-profit residential treatment agencies for girls suffering from abuse, neglect and trauma. The agency is located on a 37-acre campus in Dearborn Heights and includes five residential halls, two state-of-the-art mental health centers, two alternative education charter schools, a transitional housing dorm and program, a health clinic, and recreational facilities. Vista Maria provides a comprehensive continuum of care that includes highly individualized, specialty, residential treatment programs for girls ages 11-18 as well as mixed gender community-based programs, focused on high-risk youth from the ages of 0 to 24.
Vista Maria is currently looking for one-on-one mentors for their residential programming. Mentors can expect to spend one hour a week with one of Vista Maria’s young ladies (age 11 to 18) and can expect a 6 to 9 month commitment. Mentors will become a positive adult role model and help the young ladies build self confidence and move along their path to success. Schedules are flexible. Trainings for mentors are also available. Mentors should be female, age 20 and up. All mentoring will occur on Vista Maria’s campus.
