“I would say our son’s biggest achievement has to be their self-esteem. They now have a sense of self-worth I have never seen in them before”

“I really can’t praise the staff enough; they are so caring. We thoroughly enjoy our time up there, not just with our daughter but with other people and staff. Staff are welcoming – very much so.”
