At Promise Village, we have partnered with numerous families just like yours, and we comprehend your crisis. You dream about a better future for your son. We also perceive the promise in every teenager, and we can help him unlock his true potential. Although Promise Village is not located in Kentucky, we have seen that spending time away from home and being surrounded by loving relationships can lead to radically positive changes. While you consider your options in Kentucky, and anywhere else your search might lead you, we invite you to consider Promise Village as a strong choice.
Life in the Milieu: Promise Village is a Caring, Relational, Home-Like Setting where Counseling is Included in Every Aspect of Daily Life
Promise Village is an exceptional residential treatment home and boarding school for troubled 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 Kentucky and cities across the country. We use many forms of therapy in an eclectic model that lets us devise a program tailor-made for each teen. The cornerstone of our culture is our Life Coaches, staff who live and work in the home with residents, serving as positive role models and making the most of everyday “teachable moments.” We call this loving, safe atmosphere the “milieu,” and it simply means that we surround your child with an upbeat place that promotes change.
Animal-Assisted Therapy and Activities
Children and teens bond readily with animals even if they can’t or won’t trust people. Making an animal-friend teaches compassion and breaks down walls, building relational skills that boys can transfer later to human relationships. Dogs and in particular horses are the emphasis of our well-loved 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 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 improve their grades. With an individualized academic plan for each child, support from Life Coaches and Therapists, and consistent instruction, students show steady, if not radical, improvement.
Spiritual Development and PROMISES for Character Growth
Promise Village is a non-denominational faith-based organization. We look at spiritual needs as part of caring for 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 practice what they have learned in the home environment.
