Life in the Milieu: Promise Village is a Caring, Relational, Home-Like Place where Counseling is Part of Every Aspect of Daily Life
Promise Village is an exceptional residential treatment center and boarding school for at-risk adolescent and teenage boys. Situated on 70 acres of ranch land in Davisburg, Michigan, about a half hour from Flint and an hour from the Detroit airport, we are easily easily accessible from Columbia, Tennessee and cities across the country. We use assorted forms of therapy in an eclectic model that lets us make a program hand-selected for each child. 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 an upbeat place that promotes change.
Animal-Assisted Therapy and Activities
Children and teens bond quickly with animals even if they can’t or won’t open up to people. Making an animal-friend teaches empathy and breaks down walls, building relational skills that teens can apply later to human relationships. Dogs and in particular horses are the emphasis of our enjoyable 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 identify the reasons for their former problems with 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 do well in school. With a personalized academic plan for each boy, support from Life Coaches and Therapists, and consistent attendance, students have 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 developing the whole person. Residents work a step at a time through eight “PROMISES” principles designed for integrating personal values into their lives. In three stages, boys start from 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.
