What’s New at Madonna Heights

Madonna Heights to Open New Health and Wellness Center

Madonna Heights will be home to a new Health and Wellness Center for Women thanks to a grant from the Statewide Health Care Facility Transformation Program.

The award will allow Madonna Heights to expand health services for women and children in our care through a new outpatient substance use treatment clinic; a new primary medical care clinic in partnership with a strategic health partner; and the expansion of mental health treatment at our Family Service Clinic.

Madonna Heights is officially Sanctuary Certified

Sanctuary is about creating a safe, compassionate and high-quality trauma informed care for our youth and families and an organizational culture committed to open communication, non-violence, social responsibility, growth and change, democracy, social learning and emotional intelligence. We recently undertook a successful recertification process and are so proud of our results – and our clients’ success!
