St. Joseph Orphanage is Still Here to Help!
Accepting New Referrals
We are continuing to accept referrals. In order to keep our staff and clients safe, the majority of our staff are working from home.
Please Note: Our Central Access phone number has temporarily changed. To make a referral or ask questions, please contact:
Central Access Department
Remote Phone: (513) 334-6584
Email: [email protected]
We will work with families to complete Diagnostic Assessments over the phone and through video conferencing (TeleHealth). To get started please contact our Central Access Department any day of the week Monday-Friday during our Open Access hours 8:30am-3:00pm.
– Call our Central Access Department at (513) 334-6584 to express interest or ask questions about getting started.
– You may have the option to get started immediately or schedule a time for you (and your child) to complete the intake paperwork and assessment.
– Once you have completed this process our Central Scheduling Team will work with you to get started in the appropriate services. Please note, many of our outpatient services are via TeleHealth (video conferencing) at this time.
Please Note: If you do not have access to a camera through a cell phone, computer, tablet, or other device, please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate you.
At this time our outpatient services are offered through video conferencing (TeleHealth). These services are for new and existing clients.
We provide much-need therapy, case management, and medication to thousands of children across 10 Ohio counties. Many of our staff are working remotely. Although we are offering Therapy, Case Management, and Medication Management via TeleHealth, we will be working with families to accommodate anyone that does not have technology to participate in TeleHealth.
Therapy & Case Management
While our Therapists and Case Managers usually meet with patients in-person, we have transitioned to using online TeleHealth technology to offer support and encouragement to patients and to reinforce coping skills that can reduce anxiety and depression. We will work with each family to provide TeleHealth services or determine if office based or community based services would be an option.
Our medication prescribers have begun conducting all appointments by phone or TeleHealth. To schedule a routine or emergent same day appointment, you can reach our Central Scheduling Team between the hours of 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

Our Residential Intervention Services (formerly known as Crisis Stabilization Unit) has placed new admissions on hold at this time with plans to accept new admissions soon. We have taken safety measures to limit the amount of visitors to keep our guests and staff safe. St. Joseph Orphanage has added a COVID-19 screen to the admission criteria whereby potential guests will be free of a new onset of cough, fever greater than 100.4 degrees, shortness of breath, contact with someone positive or presumed positive of having COVID-19, or currently awaiting test results from COVID-19 testing.
Independent Living Services
We are accepting new clients and implementing safety measures to keep our clients and staff safe.
Children are still in need of homes and we are working with families to license them through an online platform. For questions or to get started please feel free to contact Bobbi Gibson: [email protected] or call temporary remote phone: (513) 549-7788
Education & Day Treatment
We are now accepting referrals for the 2020-2021 school year. Our schools were closed during the Ohio statewide school closures. Our teachers are making front porch deliveries of education materials and food to each student twice a week. They are also able to provide wellness checks with students and families while respecting a safe distance and promoting social distancing.
Safety At Our Facilities
Everyday, we take the temperature of all employees & visitors at the door of each of our facilities. We also ask them to complete a screening form conforming to CDC Guidelines. For each person, we use a fresh thermometer and gloves. If the thermometer indicates a temperature of 100 degrees or higher, we ask them to return home and contact their Primary Care Physician for guidance. In addition, we have increased cleaning and disinfecting for all of our facilities. We encourage our employees to practice social distancing, wear masks, and many of our dedicated staff members are working remotely.
