Glenwood School for Boys and Girls is a community supported non-profit organization that provides socially and economically disadvantaged children with a comprehensive residential, education and life-skills program in a safe, structured and nurturing environment.
At Glenwood, children gain the confidence, skills and courage they need for a better life and future.
Glenwood School’s mission is to provide a quality educational program and residential campus environment for children from mostly lower income and single parent families who seek positive alternatives to home and community situations, which impede opportunities for these children to achieve their full potential.
