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 outstanding residential treatment home and boarding school for at-risk adolescent and teenage boys. 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 easily reachable from Morgantown, West Virginia and cities across the nation. We use diverse forms of therapy in an eclectic model that lets us make a program tailor-made for each child. 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 looking out for everyday “teachable moments.” We call this loving, safe atmosphere 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 when they can’t or won’t open up to people. Making an animal-friend teaches compassion and opens communication, building relational skills that teens can transfer later to human relationships. Dogs and especially 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 previous poor performance in school, and then we mitigate those reasons. As they set goals for their lives and see how school makes those goals possible , they have a new reason to improve their grades. With a personalized academic plan for each student, 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 organization. We address spiritual needs as part of caring for the whole child. 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 learn the values in their own lives; then they encourage their peers to do so; and finally they transfer their progress back to the home environment.
