ST. LOUIS, Mo. – The Home Builders Charitable Foundation has donated $17,400 to the Marygrove, a therapeutic residential treatment center.

The donation will go toward the replacement of flooring in the organization’s Rosewood and Cypress Cottages, which are part of Marygrove’s therapeutic treatment program and provide a home for 30 youth, ages 14-18, who are healing from past trauma. Marygrove serves approximately 100 children and young adults each day who are struggling with behavioral, emotional or other mental health issues. It offers a continuum of behavioral health programs to help the at-risk youth learn to manage their conditions and develop the skills needed to live a productive and healthy life.

The Home Builders Charitable Foundation, the HBA’s charitable arm, is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing housing assistance to people or organizations with special shelter needs.
