The Fold Family Ministries is one of the nation's leading Christ-centered residential care programs for teens and families in crisis. The Fold provides a nurturing home environment for at-risk youth between the ages of 13 and 18, with 24-hour support including individualized counseling, academic curriculum and spiritual mentoring. We are licensed by the State of Vermont and our academic program is accredited by the National Association of Private Schools, providing students the opportunity to continue their studies and even earn a high school diploma. Our holistic services include individual, marital, and family counseling to ensure parents and all members of the family receive the growth and healing they need. This is a proven approach that has transformed hundreds of lives over the past five decades.
Over the years, hundreds of at-risk teens have turned their lives in a new direction, distraught parents have been encouraged, and fractured families have been reconciled. Many parents have found The Fold to be the answer to their prayers. Through God's love and grace, young people formerly headed in a wrong direction have found hope and healing, and gone on to successful careers, marriages, families, and life within our communities. Parents who have formerly felt unequipped as role models have learned skills to help them become effective leaders in their homes.
