There are two GSVs at Euphrasian Residence.

In their role as Youth Development Counselor, they assist the girls in their own personal development, healing, and growth. This includes organizing field trips and group activities, escorting girls to medical appointments and errands, organize “housekeeping” responsibilities in the home such as chores and room cleaning, and assisting in conflict mediation. The GSVs also can be a personal counselor for some girls, in which they meet with the girls more regularly and provide them personal support.

The young women receive a comprehensive psychological, psychiatric, medical and educational evaluation by professional staff to fully assess their needs and determine the best possible long-term solution for continued care. During a stay of up to 12 weeks or more, residents attend school on-site, and participate in a variety of therapeutic, social and recreational activities.
