FOCUS - St. Aloysius Orphanage

For over 175 years, St. Aloysius Orphanage has nurtured the physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual strengths of children and families.



On this episode of Focus, Kathy Lehr learns how St. Aloysius Orphanage provides therapeutic foster care services for children ages birth to 17 and how the organization recruits, screens and trains its foster parents.



We also learn how St. Aloysius has partnered with Cincinnati Public Schools to help severely emotionally disturbed children -- aged K through 8th grade -- receive a proper education and the additional support that they require to succeed.



Within St Aloysius' Education Center, parents, educators, family and friends can receive answers and solutions in dealing with children displaying cognitive, behavioral, and emotional health problems. Their innovative programs have proved valuable in helping very troubled children succeed in life and preparing them to transition back to their local schools. St. Aloysius also offers individual, family and group therapy as well as psychiatric medication services on site for school districts in Hamilton and Butler Counties, including C.P.S.
