Life in the Milieu: Promise Village is a Caring, Relational, Home-Like Setting where Therapy is Included in Every Aspect of Daily Life
Promise Village is an outstanding 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 60 minutes from the Detroit airport, we are easily easily reachable from Pennsylvania and cities across the country. We use assorted forms of therapy in an eclectic model that lets us make a program tailor-made for each boy. One of our key strengths is our Life Coaches, staff who live and work on campus with residents, being 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 encouraging place conducive to change.
Animal-Assisted Therapy and Activities
Children and teens bond easily with animals even if they can’t or won’t accept people. Having an animal-friend teaches empathy and opens communication, building relational skills that teens can transfer later to human relationships. Dogs and in particular 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 boys identify the reasons for their previous problems with school, and then we take care of those reasons. As they set objectives for their lives and see how school makes those goals possible , they begin to want to perform well academically. 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 organization. We look at spiritual needs as part of treating the whole individual. Residents work a step at a time through eight “PROMISES” principles designed for integrating personal values into their lives. In three stages, boys 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.
