Report Card

Samaritan Center for Young Boys & Families is a behavioral program. Families call on us when they can no longer handle the behavioral issues they are experiencing with their sons.  These behavioral problems range from anger management to lying and cheating to overt disrespect – and all things in between.  They affect every aspect of the boys’ young lives, including academic progress, social interaction with their family and peers, self-esteem and confidence.

More often than not, the behavioral issues stem from some dysfunction, disconnect or discord within the family.  At Samaritan Center, we strive to not only put these boys back on an appropriate, character-filled life course, but to help each family unify to function in a supportive and loving manner.

To effect this positive life change, it is imperative that each boy and his family work together within the structure of the Samaritan Center program.  By diligently “working the program,” not only are the lives of the boys and their families improved, but also those of their siblings, extended family members and generations to come.

We are frequently asked:  “How do you know the boys and families are improving?”  We know we make a real difference in their lives through careful monitoring, comprehensive testing and self-evaluations. Following are examples of the progress that students and their families have achieved through Samaritan Center’s program in 2016-17. Though all of the boys have not been included in this report, those spotlighted are very much representative of the boys who are currently enrolled in the Samaritan Center program.

Behavior progress as noted on the report cards below is measured on a scale of 1 (severe behavior) to 10 (appropriate/excellent behavior).
