Life in the Milieu: Promise Village is a Loving, Relational, Home-Like Place where Therapy is Part of Every Aspect of Daily Life
Promise Village is an extraordinary residential treatment center and boarding school for struggling boys ages 10-17. 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 Holly, Michigan 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 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 a positive place where change can happen.
Animal-Assisted Therapy and Activities
Children and teens bond quickly 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 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 children and teens name the reasons for their previous 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 gain motivation to perform well academically. With an individualized academic plan for each child, support from Life Coaches and Therapists, and consistent instruction, students have steady, if not drastic, improvement.
Spiritual Development and PROMISES for Character Growth
Promise Village is a non-denominational faith-based program. We look at spiritual needs as part of developing the whole child. Residents work a step at a time through eight “PROMISES” principles designed for building personal values into their lives. In three stages, children and teens start from 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.
