Shelterwood Is A Faith-Based Residential Program for Teens with Mental and Behavioral Health Challenges
Being a teenager has never been easy. While each generation of teens face problems, cell phone and social media use has compounded issues for many of today’s teens. From rising technological addiction to substance abuse to anxiety, depression and other issues, many teens are struggling. This also means many families are struggling to know how to support their kids – often leading to painful cycles of anger and frustration.
At Shelterwood, we love families. Since 1980, we have been committed to walking alongside teens and their families on the path to healing. The term “Shelterwood” describes a forestry technique in which older, stronger trees shelter and protect younger trees on the forest floor until they stand, grow and thrive on their own. In the same way, in our relational model, teens are surrounded by a community, including mentors, therapists, and teachers who provide a safe place for them to heal, grow and flourish.
We believe that every teen was created by God and has great value and purpose.
