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 at-risk boys ages 10-17. Located on 70 acres of ranch land in Davisburg, Michigan, about a half hour from Flint and 60 minutes from the Detroit airport, we are easily easy to get to from Hampton, Virginia and cities across the country. We use many forms of therapy in an eclectic model that lets us devise a program hand-selected for each child. The cornerstone of our culture is our Life Coaches, staff who live and work directly with residents, serving as positive role models and looking out for everyday “teachable moments.” We call this loving, safe environment the “milieu,” and it simply means that we surround your child with an upbeat place where change can happen.
Animal-Assisted Therapy and Activities
Children and teens bond readily with animals even if they can’t or won’t open up to people. Bonding with an animal-friend teaches empathy and breaks down walls, building relational skills that teens can apply later to human relationships. Dogs and particularly horses are the main characters in our enjoyable 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 figure out the reasons for their former troubles 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 perform well academically. With a personalized academic plan for each teen, support from Life Coaches and Therapists, and consistent instruction, students have steady, if not radical, improvement.
Spiritual Development and PROMISES for Character Growth
Promise Village is a non-denominational faith-based program. We address spiritual needs as part of treating the whole individual. Residents work a step at a time through eight “PROMISES” principles designed for introducing personal values into their lives. In three stages, children and teens build on their strengths to make the values true in their own lives; then they encourage their peers to do so; and finally they practice what they have learned in the home environment.
