Life in the Milieu: Promise Village is a Caring, Relational, Home-Like Place where Therapy is Part of Every Aspect of Daily Life
Promise Village is an exceptional residential treatment home and boarding school for troubled boys ages 10-17. Located on 70 acres of ranch land in Davisburg, Michigan, about 30 minutes from Flint and an hour from the Detroit airport, we are easily easily accessible from Birmingham, Michigan and cities across the nation. We use diverse forms of therapy in an eclectic model that lets us make a program tailor-made for each boy. The cornerstone of our culture is our Life Coaches, staff who live and work in the home 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 child with a positive place that promotes change.
Animal-Assisted Therapy and Activities
Children and teens bond quickly with animals even if they can’t or won’t trust people. Spending time with an animal-friend teaches empathy and breaks down walls, building relational skills that boys can apply later to human relationships. Dogs and especially horses are the emphasis of our popular and professional animal therapy, but our farm also includes 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 boys name the reasons for their former poor performance in school, and then we take care of those reasons. As they set goals for their lives and see how school contributes to those goals , they begin to want to perform well academically. With a personalized academic plan for each boy, support from Life Coaches and Therapists, and consistent attendance, students show steady, if not drastic, improvement.
Spiritual Development and PROMISES for Character Growth
Promise Village is a non-denominational faith-based program. We take care of spiritual needs as part of caring for the whole child. Residents work a step at a time through eight “PROMISES” principles designed for integrating personal values into their lives. In three stages, boys build on their strengths to implement the values in their own lives; then they encourage their peers to do so; and finally they practice what they have learned in the home environment.
