St. Joseph Orphanage (SJO) is a Comprehensive Behavioral Health and Educational Treatment Agency providing various Behavioral Health Services, Education Programs, Foster Care, and Medication Management.

SJO is the oldest social service agency founded by the Sisters of Charity as an orphanage over 185 years ago. In the 1980’s and 1990’s SJO transitioned from a traditional orphanage to an innovative Behavioral Health Agency.

We serve over 1,500 kids & young adults daily who suffer with mental health, educational and behavioral concerns often due to abuse, neglect, & trauma. Many of these kids come from unsafe neighborhoods and home lives with a bleak future. We care for the kids who have nowhere else to go to get help.

Does your organization have volunteer opportunities available for students? * No, sorry.
