About Us

Samaritan Center is a five day a week residential, Christian program designed to address and modify inappropriate behaviors in young boys. 

Samaritan Center boys are here on a voluntary basis. They are not court appointed. Our application process helps us to determine if the boy, his family and our staff can work the program together. It is critically important that the family commit to their son and the program. It’s the only way that success can be achieved.

Boys come to Samaritan Center as a result of inappropriate behavior that can also result in poor academic performance.  As a team, we work together to modify each boy's behavior, get him at or above his expected grade level, and build his character, self-esteem and sense of community.  We are dedicated to excellence throughout every aspect of our program.  

Our Christian-based program approaches these challenges from a positive perspective. We employ structure, consistency, love and encouragement. We use a basic merit and demerit system to encourage the boys to make good choices. There is no corporal punishment…..ever!
