Our Heritage: Help, Hope, Healing. This is what goes on every day on our beautiful 110-acre residential campus along the Wando River in Awendaw. Our boys have access to several ponds, nature and fitness trails, a wide variety of animals, an obstacle and challenge course, and an on-campus education center. These programs are led by highly skilled staff and best practice evidenced based therapeutic interventions. It all adds up to a nationally accredited treatment program that offers each child a chance to elevate himself beyond his wildest expectations.
On the way to becoming a productive member of our community, children are given the opportunity to acquire skills to regulate behaviors and emotions, or to overcome past traumas. We offer a unique approach to the healing process; it is truly a lifeline for at-risk children. Therapies geared to increase problem solving and emotion regulation increase the child’s ability to achieve a successful completion of our program.
For anyone who questions whether or not miracles happen; I invite you to come visit us. At Windwood Farm, miracles happen every day! The smiles on the faces of the children – especially those who have overcome exposure to horrific living situations, extreme abuse and neglect, substance abuse, or physical cruelty – tell a compelling story. Our boys are living proof that lives can be changed, that character can be built, and that success lies at the feet of those who embrace the tools offered to them to move forward. For our boys who are fortunate to have had emotional support from a loving family during their stay, the positive outcomes are even more evident.
Over the past 31 years, 500 boys have called Windwood Farm their home. The services provided here takes them one step closer to a a brighter future and successful life in our community.
