As of July 2013, St. Vincent Homes, a residential program for adolescent girls, merged with St. Francis-St. Joseph Homes for Children, which is administered by Catholic Social Services of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. As such, St. Vincent Homes continues to operate three group homes dedicated to the care of young women ages 12-18 identified as “dependent” or “delinquent” by Philadelphia Family Court.
Admission to St. Vincent Homes is done via referral by the Philadelphia Department of Human Services (DHS). Youth can be admitted on either a planned or emergency basis (24/7). A full continuum of round the clock care is provided by trained staff in a safe, clean, and licensed facility. Our professional team includes social workers, therapists, and residential coordinators. Average length of stay is approximately 4 months.
