St. Joseph’s Villa of Rochester will assume operation of the adolescent programs run by DePaul Community Services Inc.
“DePaul recognizes that in a challenging environment, agencies need to work together to provide the most comprehensive services,” DePaul president Mark Fuller said. “St. Joseph’s Villa is positioned to ensure that comprehensive care can be delivered to this challenging population of adolescents.”
After three months of negotiation, the acquisition was completed earlier this week, said Roger Battaglia, president and CEO of St. Joseph’s Villa.
“As DePaul seeks to focus on its core mission of serving adults, St. Joseph’s Villa is excited to have this opportunity to expand our programs for youth and families,” Battaglia said in a prepared statement.
“The Villa is recognized nationally for the high quality of care provided to children and adolescents, and is an established community leader in the mental health field,” he said. “We feel the acquisition strengthens both organization while ensuring the highest level of service possible for the youth of our community.”
The St. Joseph’s Villa will take over DePaul’s adolescent group-home and supervised independent living programs. The group-home service is a treatment program that helps teens develop personal responsibility and daily living skills while residing in a community neighborhood setting.
DePaul’s three group homes will complement the four already operated by the St. Joseph’s Villa, Battaglia said.
The supervised-living program serves teens in foster care who are preparing for an independent adult life. St. Joseph’s Villa will assume operation for 12 apartment-rental locations in Monroe County.
The two programs serve 44 clients. Funding comes from the state Department of Social Services and Office of Mental Health. St. Joseph’s Villa will hire 35 DePaul employees as part of the transfer agreement.
