SavingTeens Partners with Alpine Academy to Help a Struggling Teen

October 15, 2015 – This year has been an incredibly exciting for SavingTeens. Changes in our application process and leadership have led to a surge in exciting partnerships. Our most recent partnership with Alpine Academy is a perfect example of the therapeutic care community’s desire to help young people by partnering with SavingTeens.

During the summer of 2015, Alpine Academy made a commitment to partnering with SavingTeens. We worked together, along with Educational Consultant Kristie Campbell, to offer a large discount and scholarship to a struggling young woman. Sadly, the young woman was unable to follow through, but the generosity of Alpine was truly noteworthy.

When the opportunity came again to help a struggling teen, SavingTeens, Alpine Academy, and Educational Consultant Jeanne Hughes worked together to provide a viable financial solution to parents trying to help their struggling daughter. This young woman is now safely on her way towards recovery at Alpine.

Alpine Academy’s commitment to philanthropy made this partnership possible. Generous discounts, donated services, and SavingTeens scholarships allow us to help more families every year.  We look forward to creating more partnerships such as this in the years to come.

About SavingTeens: SavingTeens In Crisis Collaborative is a philanthropic organization formed in April 2004 to assist troubled teens & their families struggling with significant emotional & behavioral challenges including anxiety, depression, addictions & other risky behaviors.
Working in close collaboration with the therapeutic community, SavingTeens provides financial & other support to families of teens in crisis.

About Alpine Academy: Research shows that children learn best in a family-like environment. Thus, although Alpine Academy is a private school, it doesn’t look like one. It doesn’t look like a treatment facility either, although it is one. What Alpine Academy looks like is a community of beautiful homes set on a ranch. The girls eat meals together in the dining room, work together on daily chores, and are expected to participate in group activities, much as they would at home in everyday life.
