At Shelterwood, our desire is to create an environment where teens know they are loved, valued and have purpose. We believe that meaning and hope are found in Jesus, yet we are careful to respect each teen’s faith journey. Teens arrive at Shelterwood when they are at their worst, and often leave with a transformed heart and a life restored.
