At Promise Village, we have served hundreds of families just like yours, and we comprehend your crisis. You hold out hope for a positive future for your son. We also know the promise in every teen boy, and we can help him unlock his true potential.

Life in the Milieu: Promise Village is a Loving, Relational, Home-Like Place where Therapy is Included in Every Aspect of Daily Life
Promise Village is an outstanding residential treatment home and boarding school for at-risk boys ages 10-17. Situated on 70 acres of ranch property in Davisburg, Michigan, about 30 minutes from Flint and an hour from the Detroit airport, we are easily easily reachable from Arizona and cities across the country. We use diverse forms of therapy in an eclectic model that lets us make a program hand-selected for each teen. One of our key strengths is our Life Coaches, staff who live and work on campus with residents, being positive role models and looking out for everyday “teachable moments.” We call this loving, safe atmosphere the “milieu,” and it simply means that we embrace your teen with a positive place that promotes change.
Animal-Assisted Therapy and Activities
Children and teens bond easily with animals even if they can’t or won’t trust people. Making an animal-friend teaches empathy and opens communication, building relational skills that teens can transfer later to human relationships. Dogs and in particular horses are the highlights of our well-loved and professional animal therapy, but our farm also houses exotic birds; outdoor cats; miniature goats, horses, and donkeys; llamas; and a friendly cow.
Boarding School for Boys that Includes Improving Academic Performance and Motivations
We help children and teens identify the reasons for their former poor performance in school, and then we lessen those reasons. As they set goals for their lives and see how school makes those goals possible , they gain motivation to do well in school. With an individualized academic plan for each boy, support from Life Coaches and Therapists, and consistent instruction, students display steady, if not drastic, improvement.
Spiritual Development and PROMISES for Character Growth
Promise Village is a non-denominational faith-based organization. We take care of spiritual needs as part of treating the whole individual. Residents work a step at a time through eight “PROMISES” principles designed for integrating personal values into their lives. In three stages, children and teens build on their strengths to implement the values in their own lives; then they begin to help and serve their peers; and finally they transfer their progress back to the home environment.
