You may have heard some rumors, but we want to make it official.

Rosemary Children’s Services is Now
Victor Treatment Centers

 

HOW WE GOT HERE

Rosemary became affiliated with Victor in 2015 primarily because the leadership of Rosemary were seeing the priorities of state agencies changing and saw the need for additional support to be able to continue to serve children, teens and families. Victor leadership saw Rosemary as an organization with a similar heart and mission, and an incredibly rich history of service in the LA County area. Rather than simply taking over, Victor leadership was committed to honoring the legacy of Rosemary and our long-term partnership with LA County and learning what we do and how we do it in depth before finalizing the acquisition.

We have spent the last few years aligning our mission, clarifying our roles, and readying ourselves for this change. We are ready and excited, but we recognize that the Rosemary name carries 95 years of legacy, so this is not an easy shift.
