Teens enjoy a weekly call home along with regular family counseling throughout their stay. Twice annually, parents are invited to attend family retreat weekends on campus. These events are designed to deepen the family relationship through intensive family sessions, parent group meetings and seminars, and a wide variety of fun and adventurous activities.
We also work closely with parents in the development of their teen’s aftercare plan to make re-entry of their teen back home as effective as possible.
Success at Shelterwood is seeing teens self-regulating their emotions and behaviors, engaging in healthy relationships, participating in school again, and discovering their individual significance. Success is when families are healed and hope is restored. These are the end goals we commit to for each child and family we serve.
