About Us

Our vision is to raise up individuals who are empowered to positively impact future generations. We provide a trauma-informed environment which gives kids a chance to grow spiritually, academically, and socially.

In 1957 we opened our doors and hearts to kids in need of stability and love. What began as a single home and a staff of four, is now a beautiful estate with nine homes, a staff of 50, an ACSI accredited private Christian school, rec center, dining hall and horse stables. Over the years, our responsibilities have grown, but the mission remains the same: to provide home, school, and therapy for kids who are at-risk. Families turn to Cookson Hills for help. Raising children is challenging, and it’s even more difficult when you don’t have the resources you need. Since 1957, we’ve been partnering with families to give kids love, education, and healing in a beautiful setting. Each member of our team works to give children the best chance to live a mature life. We exhaust every option to give them the best opportunity possible.
