November 17, 2014 – SavingTeens in Crisis Collaborative (SavingTeens) has helped another family move from a wilderness program to a therapeutic boarding school. We could not have accomplished this without the dedication and generosity of our partners.
The young man has successfully completed his stay at Second Nature – Cascades and is now moving on to Ashcreek Academy in Utah. Through the continued pro-bono support of Dr. Judi Bessette of Compass Educational Consulting, the family negotiated successfully with their local school system to support their son in an out-of-system placement. Coupled with a very generous scholarship from Ashcreek Academy, this family continues to make progress.
SavingTeens collaborations allow us to offer support to troubled young people and their families. One of our most significant partnerships is with our donors. Without this support we could not continue to fund families. Treatment for troubled teens is cost prohibitive for all but the most well-to-do families, so every donation of dollars and services is crucial.
