We also perceive the promise in every teenager, and we can guide him toward his true potential.

Life in the Milieu: Promise Village is a Caring, Relational, Home-Like Place where Counseling is Included in 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 property in Davisburg, Michigan, about 30 minutes from Flint and 60 minutes from the Detroit airport, we are easily easy to get to from Indiana and cities across the country. We use many forms of therapy in an eclectic model that lets us make a program hand-selected for each child. One of our key strengths is our Life Coaches, staff who live and work directly with residents, serving as positive role models and making the most of everyday “teachable moments.” We call this loving, safe environment the “milieu,” and it simply means that we surround your teen with a positive place conducive to change.
Animal-Assisted Therapy and Activities
Children and teens bond readily with animals even when they can’t or won’t open up to people. Making an animal-friend teaches compassion and breaks down walls, building relational skills that teens can apply later to human relationships. Dogs and especially horses are the main characters in 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 children and teens figure out the reasons for their previous poor performance in school, and then we take care of those reasons. As they set objectives for their lives and see how school contributes to those goals , they begin to want to improve their grades. With an individualized academic plan for each child, support from Life Coaches and Therapists, and consistent attendance, students display 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 treating the whole person. 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 make the values true in their own lives; then they begin to help and serve their peers; and finally they transfer their progress back to the home environment.
