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 extraordinary residential treatment home and boarding school for struggling boys ages 10-17. Located on 70 acres of ranch land in Davisburg, Michigan, about 30 minutes from Flint and an hour from the Detroit airport, we are easily easy to get to from Pontiac, Michigan and cities across the nation. 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 atmosphere the “milieu,” and it simply means that we surround your teen with an upbeat place conducive to change.
Animal-Assisted Therapy and Activities
Children and teens bond readily with animals even if they can’t or won’t trust people. Spending time with an animal-friend teaches compassion and opens communication, building relational skills that boys can transfer later to human relationships. Dogs and particularly horses are the highlights of our popular 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 former poor performance in school, and then we lessen those reasons. As they set objectives for their lives and see how school contributes to those goals , they have a new reason to perform well academically. With an individualized academic plan for each boy, 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 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 introducing personal values into their lives. In three stages, boys start from their strengths to learn the values in their own lives; then they encourage their peers to do so; and finally they practice what they have learned in the home environment.
