From a Parent’s Perspective
“No words could ever describe what Elevations has meant to our family,” commented a parent about her troubled teen, “Elevations gave us the coping tools to become a more unified family. Everyone served as faithful and positive mentors and friends to our son, even in the most trying times.”
“The teachers were awesome to work with him” Holly mentioned about her formerly troubled teen, “He entered the school pledging he would never go to school again but they were patient with him and helped him gain back his confidence in his educational abilities. He is about to finish his first quarter at the regular public high school with A’s and B’s. We never believed that could happen and the teachers at Elevations deserve the credit. ”
– Holly, Parent
“I will forever be grateful to Elevations for giving me back my daughter,” commented a parent about her troubled teen, “She is back in school, living a very productive and happy life. She has a fabulous support system that includes many of her friends from Elevations that hold each other accountable”.
– Sandy, Parent
“My daughter spent eight months at Elevations and overcame many challenges with the help of an amazing therapist and a supportive environment. She struggled to find motivation when she arrived and even when she tried to give up, the staff continued to encourage her. Once she began to work toward her levels, she learned to open up and create healthy relationships with both staff and students. She became a program peer mentor, which is something she never thought she would be able to achieve. School was challenging, and the teachers were willing to provide additional help so she could stay caught up in her classes. The recreation program helped introduce her to rock climbing and hiking which have become strong passions of hers. Along with this, she gained self confidence and reasons to look forward to the future.”
