"Trials still came and will always come, but now I know how I should handle them. I saw the evidence that God was starting to clean up my life. One of the key verses for me, especially during these trials, has been James 1:2-4, because it talks about the fruit of the trials. It builds an unbreakable perseverance."

~ Jon, Boys' Home Resident

INTERVIEW & INTAKE PROCESS

  3. The family comes on-site for a day long interview process which includes touring our campuses and meeting with staff members to discern if The Fold is the right fit for your family. Before leaving the interview, Fold staff members will meet with the teen to let them know if they have been invited to participate in the program.
  4. If invited, the teen (and family) is given a few days to decide if they want to accept the invitation to participate in The Fold’s program. The teen is given a specific day to call our office with his or her decision. If the teen calls and says, "yes," an intake date is scheduled for the teen to start the program.
