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 extraordinary residential treatment center and boarding school for troubled adolescent and teenage boys. Located on 70 acres of ranch property in Davisburg, Michigan, about a half hour from Flint and an hour from the Detroit airport, we are easily easily reachable from River Falls, Wisconsin and cities across the nation. We use many forms of therapy in an eclectic model that lets us fashion a program tailor-made for each boy. The cornerstone of our culture is our Life Coaches, staff who live and work directly with residents, being positive role models and making the most of everyday “teachable moments.” We call this loving, safe environment the “milieu,” and it simply means that we surround your teen with an encouraging place where change can happen.
Animal-Assisted Therapy and Activities
Children and teens bond easily with animals even when they can’t or won’t trust people. Bonding with an animal-friend teaches empathy and opens communication, building relational skills that boys can apply later to human relationships. Dogs and especially horses are the main characters in 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 identify the reasons for their previous problems with school, and then we lessen those reasons. As they set objectives for their lives and see how school makes those goals possible , they begin to want to do well in school. With an individualized academic plan for each boy, support from Life Coaches and Therapists, and consistent instruction, students display steady, if not radical, improvement.
Spiritual Development and PROMISES for Character Growth
Promise Village is a non-denominational faith-based program. We take care of spiritual needs as part of developing the whole child. 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 build on 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.
