Being dependent on God, we inspire and equip at-risk youth and families to lead healthy and responsible lives through family-centered care, treatment, and education.

Programs: 

Rawhide provides residential treatment for at-risk teenage boys who have suffered various types of trauma. Our New London campus hosts three residential programs: About Face, Standard Long-Term Residential, and Group Home. Each program is staffed by a married houseparent couple who fill a pseudo mother and father role to the youth. The About Face program operates as a military style program, while Standard Long-Term Residential operates in a more relaxed environment. The Group Home emphasizes the teaching of independent living skills.

In addition to residential treatment, Rawhide offers outpatient mental health counseling, equine therapy, and foster care. The youth of Rawhide are enrolled at our year-round, fully accredited high school called Starr Academy, where they are able to earn a high school diploma. At Rawhide, we train the leaders of tomorrow.
