Shepherd's Hill Farm
At SHF, therapy is not something that is reserved for an office. Therapy is done everywhere and all the time. Our 30 full and part time staff members are trained to look for "teachable moments" in every activity and in every situation. They use a variety of proven therapeutic strategies, straight from the bible, to challenge faulty thinking and encourage positive changes in students' behavior. Our goal is to equip at-risk and troubled youth struggling with behavioral issues with the tools necessary to become more productive members at home, school, and in the community.
The program takes troubled youth out of their normal comfort zone and requires them to build their own living quarters in the woods. With no electricity, and with the help of counselors and peers, every student succeeds while learning coping skills and communal cooperation necessary for basic daily needs. These skills are designed to be transferable into their societal roles, as rights and privileges are reinstated to the degree that students fulfill their responsibilities and obligations.
After one year in the outdoor therapeutic program, students are eligible for our transition program, "The 'Next Step", which prepares them to re-enter the normal world. Here they can live under supervision in a real house with the use of modern conveniences so they can adjust to a more self-disciplined approach to life.
