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 exceptional residential treatment home and boarding school for struggling boys ages 10-17. 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 easy to get to from Springfield, Massachusetts and cities across the country. We use many forms of therapy in an eclectic model that lets us devise a program tailor-made for each boy. One of our key strengths is our Life Coaches, staff who live and work directly with residents, serving as positive role models and looking out for everyday “teachable moments.” We call this loving, safe environment the “milieu,” and it simply means that we embrace your child with a positive place that promotes change.
Animal-Assisted Therapy and Activities
Children and teens bond easily with animals even when they can’t or won’t accept people. Bonding with an animal-friend teaches compassion and breaks down walls, building relational skills that boys can apply later to human relationships. Dogs and in particular horses are the emphasis 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 identify the reasons for their previous troubles in school, and then we lessen those reasons. As they set objectives for their lives and see how school contributes to those goals , they gain motivation to improve their grades. With a personalized academic plan for each student, 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 developing the whole individual. 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 make the values true in their own lives; then they encourage their peers to do so; and finally they practice what they have learned in the home environment.
