The mission of Salem4youth is to be a ‘premier, Biblically based organization that excels at mentoring and supporting youth and families in crisis.’ We believe that it is not just about changing their behavior, but it is all about a change in their heart.
Much like the story of the prodigal son in Luke 15:11-32, the boys who come to Salem require alternative methods of training and a structure that can help them realize the success of a better way. As Hebrews 3:10 says, ‘their hearts have gone astray and they do not know my way…’ Our purpose is to come alongside the family, by providing their son with an environment that helps ‘…bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord’. (Ephesians 6:4)
Perhaps nothing can compare to the hurt and pain you are experiencing as you watch your son slipping further away from all you had hoped for him. Panic, despair, hopelessness, fear and anger are all emotions you may have felt over the course of weeks, months or years as you have tried your best to parent your son.
Our desire is to come alongside your family and assist you in providing the instructional, educational and spiritual tools that are needed for maximum success
