    Relationship to Child:

    Important Parent/Guardian Information

    You have admitted your child for a thirty (30) day intensive therapeutic residential program at Saint Vincent Home for Children.  The program is structured and ruled and works most efficiently with you also complying with those rules. 

    After admission, you are free to contact us to visit or leave the premises with your child with prior notice.  The only requirement is that the child NOT leave the facility for the first full weekend of their stay.  This allows the child to become acclimated to their new surroundings and to realize their actual purpose in the program. 

    If you plan to visit on-campus, visiting hours are as such: 

    • Monday through Saturday, visiting hours are from 8:00 AM—8:00 PM. 
    • Sunday, visiting hours are from 8:00 AM—7:00 PM.

    Phone calls for the residents are completed during specific time frames.  Residents are able to make phone calls every day of the week.  Monday through Friday, residents are allowed to call between the hours of 5:00 PM—8:00 PM.   

    Saturday and Sunday, clients are allowed 1 five-minute phone call per shift, and there are 2 shifts.  The specific times to call are left to the discretion of the shift supervisors.  Residents are not allowed to make or receive phone calls throughout the regular business day, as they are participating in either school, groups, or activities.  If you need to speak with your child during these times, you can call the front desk and will be transferred to the resident’s assigned therapist, who can authorize a call when they are available. 

    The main number to contact St. Vincent Home for Children is: 314-261-6011.  This number is active from 9:00—5:00PM Monday through Friday. If calling after 5:00 PM or during weekend hours, the number is 314-791-1460.  This number rings directly to the shift supervisor, who can assist you. 

    If you desire to bring your child additional clothing, we ask that they are limited to 10 outfits total, as they are able to wash twice per week.  We may ask that you swap out clothing if we begin to accumulate excess clothing for your child. 

    Lastly, your child will be assigned a therapist to work with individually and also with your family.  This assignment typically occurs within the first 3 days of their admittance.  If your therapist has not contacted you within 7 days of admittance to introduce themselves and discuss the start of family counseling, please contact us to inquire at the main number. 

    Several factors determined the implementation of a No Outside Food Policy at St. Vincent Home for Children. Residents are no longer allowed to have outside food on the campus and parents are no longer allowed to provide outside food.  If food is provided for a family visit, all food must be consumed during the visit and any leftovers must be taken off site with families.  Residents are able to purchase drinks from on-site vending machines.  Residents and families who violate this rule will be required immediately to dispose of snacks and foods at that time.
