Who We Are

We are, first and foremost, a home.

And the people who live under our roof become like family.

A young boy first walks through these doors…

broken and afraid

angry and bewildered

anxious and alone.

Abuse, neglect, violence and unspeakable trauma have derailed his childhood.

 

It is our mission to rebuild healthy lives for these children...allow them to reconstruct the dream of a rewarding and productive life…and restore hope and joy to them completely… body, mind, heart, soul and spirit.

 

We believe it is never too late for a happy childhood.

The severity of the boys’ problems requires the expertise of a highly trained professional staff. The team, which includes clinical therapists, youth specialists, education counselors, recreation staff and a medical liaison, creates a highly structured treatment plan for each child to help rebuild his life.

 

The House team has grown to over fifty full and part-time staff whose work is supported by many active volunteers.
