Welcome to Gannondale!
Gannondale, a ministry of the Sisters of Our Lady of Charity, provides holistic and therapeutic residential care for young women placed by the courts.
At Gannondale, we believe in empowering young women to realize their intrinsic worth. We provide a safe, non-threatening environment, where the diversity of young women is accepted and their cultures, traditions and heritages are honored. We celebrate God given talents and potential and we respond to each individual’s unique treatment needs.
We provide gender specific programming and follow the Sanctuary Model for Trauma Informed Care. Through mentoring by example, we encourage accountability, increase competencies, instill life skills, teach ownership and personal responsibility, and improve familial relationships so that a return to the family and community is possible. We inspire goal setting and the confidence to achieve future success and stability. The impact that Gannondale has on the lives of our girls is everlasting and can be better understood through reading former resident testimonials.
