Life in the Milieu: Promise Village is a Loving, Relational, Home-Like Setting where Therapy is Part of Every Aspect of Daily Life
Promise Village is an outstanding 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 one hour from the Detroit airport, we are easily easily reachable from Newport News, Virginia and cities across the country. We use many forms of therapy in an eclectic model that lets us fashion 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 atmosphere the “milieu,” and it simply means that we embrace your teen with an upbeat place that promotes change.
Animal-Assisted Therapy and Activities
Children and teens bond easily with animals even when they can’t or won’t trust people. Spending time with an animal-friend teaches empathy and opens communication, building relational skills that teens can apply later to human relationships. Dogs and in particular horses are the highlights 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 boys figure out the reasons for their former poor performance in school, and then we take care of those reasons. As they set goals for their lives and see how school helps them meet those goals , they have a new reason to improve their grades. With an individualized academic plan for each teen, support from Life Coaches and Therapists, and consistent attendance, students show 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 treating the whole person. Residents work a step at a time through eight “PROMISES” principles designed for introducing personal values into their lives. In three stages, boys build on their strengths to implement the values 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.
