We believe in nurturing the spirit of our children and in being a haven of security and structure so that they can emerge well-equipped into adulthood with a wellspring within them that will enable them to move forward in this world in their lives and prosper.
We empower children and adolescents to achieve recovery through intensive support, with guidance to build purpose and reach their goals.
This is what sets us apart, our approach. We encourage every one of our children to look to the future and determine a purpose they believe in for their life. This is the strongest motivator and indicator for future success in any person. We also encourage the setting of specific goals to achieve that ultimate purpose.
