Helping “at-risk” children and adolescents is our only focus. Working with all populations of youth, we have earned a national reputation as a leader in the field of education and treatment for “at-risk” youth. Finding hope for youth and adolescents who are considered hopeless by others is something we do every day, because for us, giving up on a troubled child is simply not an option.
