Barbaraa Hargrove In the 1850s, Bishop Amat (First Bishop of Monterey/Los Angeles Diocese) asked the Daughters of Charity to come to the Pueblo of Los Angeles to open an orphanage for abandoned children living in the streets. On January 6, 1856, five Daughters of Charity arrived from their American Provincial House in Maryland to open Los Angeles’ first orphanage and hospital in the small, wood-frame Wilson Home on the site of what we now know as LA’s Union Station. By 1857, the number of children at the orphanage had grown, and the Sisters built a new building adjacent to the first. In 1869, it was officially named the Los Angeles Orphan Asylum. As the area’s orphan population grew, a site was purchased in 1891 in Boyle Heights and a majestic building erected. Thousands of youngsters were cared for until the location was abandoned 62 years later due to earthquake damage and freeway expansion. In 1953, the Rosemead location was dedicated and opened under the name of Maryvale. Currently Maryvale is a residential facility for girls ages 6 through 17 in Rosemead, California. An After Care Program supports former residents as well as Transitional Housing in El Monte. In 1999, our Early Education Program originally established at Maryvale’s Rosemead campus in 1968, expanded to include a second location in Duarte. Mental Health Services are an integral part of Maryvale’s program of care. The Maryvale Family Resource & Early Education Center, opened in Duarte in 2010, expands crisis prevention services to families, children and individuals. Daughters of Charity In 1633, St. Vincent de Paul, a humble French priest, and St. Louise de Marillac, a widow, founded the Daughters of Charity to serve the poor. Prayer and community life were essential elements of their lifestyle. In the same spirit, the Daughters of Charity respond to many forms of poverty today. The motto is emblazoned on the seal: “The charity of Jesus Christ crucified urges us.” “We should assist the poor in every way, and do it both by ourselves and by enlisting the help of others.” ~ St. Vincent de Paul The mission of the Daughters of Charity is to honor our Lord Jesus Christ as the source and model of all charity, serving Him corporally and spiritually in the person of the Poor. The Charity of Christ urges us to live our Vincentian Core Values of: Respect Recognizing our own value and the value of others. Compassionate Service Providing excellent care with gentleness and kindness. Simplicity Acting with integrity, clarity and honesty. Advocacy for the Poor Supporting those who lack resources for a healthy life and full human development. Inventiveness to Infinity Being continuously resourceful and creative.

Barbaraa Hargrove I spent 4 years at this convent and orphanage, That's me with the blond hair on the right, It was not all bad memories, The nuns were from France, and were orphans there selves having no choice but to come to the U.S. and run Saint Vincent de paul's, You could tell their heart wasn't in it, they merely went thru the motions, but my sister and I survived, I often wonder what became of all the other girls.

Barbaraa Hargrove our grandfather came from Syria, and at Ellis Island they told him to chose a more American name , so he changed it from Solomon David Maloff to Solomon David, so our last name became David, which I never liked. So my father Johnnie David was a self taught musician, and traveled with JIMMY DORSEY and his band in the 1940's. He was a very handsome man and did very small parts in different movies. He never made much money but did what he really enjoyed.
