Is your child in need of mindless brainwashing by a group of christian fundamentalists? Then we have the place for you! As an individual who attended Shelterwood for five months during his high school years I can fully and honestly say that this group of extremists did more harm to my family than good. The trauma that this "residential care facility" puts their... victims? patients? hostages? I mean... students through isn't worth the damage that last years after they get out. Avoid this place at all costs.
We tried everything before we came to Shelterwood. Parenting books, youth group, counseling, homeschooling: they helped, but none of them solved the problems. Shelterwood was different. Being immersed in the environment there finally got his attention. I only wish we had discovered Shelterwood sooner
Shelterwood, thank you from the bottom of my heart for all you have done for our family. You are a place of healing, of hope, of new beginnings.
Since she went to Shelterwood, I see so many positive changes in my daughter. She seems to know who she is and where she belongs in our family. When she disagrees with me or her mother, she can stand up and speak respectfully about it with us. She is now a young woman of integrity, not an angry fireball, and she cares for other people like she never has before.
Our son had reached a crisis in his life when we enrolled him in Shelterwood. The compassionate, professional counselors helped him deal with the immediate need, but more than that, they helped him straighten out his thinking so a crisis like this would not come again. Being surrounded by other young men going through similar transformations encouraged him greatly. The whole environment at Shelterwood surrounded him with love and solid Biblical teaching, and he is much the better for it.
We are so thankful Shelterwood was there to help us in our role as parents. It was unspeakably difficult to admit we needed help to train our son in a Godly way, but Shelterwood was gracious and understanding at every step. They provided an experience for him that we could never have duplicated at home and taught him things he would never have accepted from us. Going away for a while gave us all a break from the tension and pain. Shelterwood gave us solid teaching so we could step back and think constructively about our relationship while we healed. We are stronger now as a family than we have ever been before.
Great Program for troubled teens – Shelterwood has really improved their campus lately. They also have a much lower tuition than many therapeutic programs. I like Shelterwood because it offers more than most other programs. Not only are they licensed but they also are accredited. They really personalize with each child with nearly a 1 to 1 staff to student ratio! They have many counselors and therapist. They also have a large group of mentors.
If you are in need of a program for a teen that is struggling to find his way, I recommend you take a closer look at Shelterwood and compare it to other similar programs. I know Shelterwood can turn your teen's life around!
