NHBR is a Christian residential program with a mission for character growth and family restoration. We provide services to 20 boys in a home-like environment in which troubled adolescents adopt better life attitudes, flourish in their belief, find a safe and nurturing environment, and conquer their challenges and problems. We balance hard work with inviting recreation such as fishing, hiking, horseback riding, hunting and swimming. Our picturesque mountainous location is a great place for backpacking, camping and hiking.
A therapeutic boarding school that works hard to encourage academic, emotional, spiritual, and physical fitness by teaching discipline and helping them to rebuild relationships. Adolescents arrive at New Horizons Boys Ranch from across the nation, including from Michigan, and often find it constructive to spend time in a new environment separate from local peer groups.
Every child begins by forming a relationship with an adult mentor. Strenuous activities and daily chores build a strong work ethic and many other attractive character qualities. Then, in context of a relationship with a mentor, the teen can tackle the destructive choices that had caused the need for intervention. We also provide individual and group counseling to improve attitudes and behaviors.
Students at New Horizons Boys Ranch are provided a fully accredited school that also offers independent study courses. All credits earned transfer easily to any other school. The self-paced nature of the coursework suits our students well, permitting them to learn in the way they find best and catch up on any missed credits. We believe discipline plays a key part in any worthwhile education, and we communicate this in our classroom. In addition, vocational training topics include automotive, construction, culinary, life skills, and ranching.
Genuine family restoration takes place only with the total commitment of parents. We request parents to attend three family workshops per year for coaching, family therapy and to visit their child on our campus. We support frequent contact between parents and adolescents using tools such as letter writing, which reinforces communication and strengthens relationships without the emotional charge of face-to-face contact.
We are a Christ-centered youth ranch that leads adolescents to find their place in life. Through mentorship, counseling, hard work and plenty of play, we believe in values and character traits that will be profitable for your child all of his or her life. Please consider looking beyond Michigan to see how our caring program can lead to restoration in your family.
