SavingTeens® has assisted over 70 families through grants totaling over $350,000 to parents and therapeutic programs since our founding in 2004. These awards subsidize program fees and individual counseling expenses. Without the support provided by our generous donors, these families would have been unable to access the spectrum of care their adolescent needed.
A few examples of SavingTeens impact:
“John” was out of control. He was fourteen and wrestling with substance addiction. He was not attending school and had been detained by the authorities for a number of offenses. Through the generous support of SavingTeens, he embarked upon a multistage recovery that included wilderness and therapeutic programs, assistance to help him transition back home, and six months at a private school allowing John to graduate high school with the necessary academic skills to achieve self-sufficiency. Currently, John is thriving, works two jobs, is married, and thinking about going back to school.
“Sue” was oppositional and angry. The family was in crisis as Sue’s behavior escalated. Her mother did not know where to turn. Sue’s treatment at a therapeutic program in Michigan was funded by a scholarship facilitated by SavingTeens. The Fine Arts program Sue attended helped her self confidence reach levels her family had never imagined. She continues to perform at school functions and other community events. Her mother states, “Overall- I’m amazed at who this young lady has developed into and continues to become. The whole thing is a miracle, though we still live one day at a time.”
