About Lakeside for Children
Lakeside for Children is a residential treatment facility for abused and neglected boys and girls (ages 12-18) who have been removed from their homes for their own safety and/or been court-ordered into the juvenile justice system due to their own offenses.
Lakeside immerses each youth in a peer-driven therapeutic and educational milieu that:
- Acknowledges each child’s unique story
- Provides skills necessary to build healthy relationships
- Empowers him/her to make better life choices
- Emphasizes the importance of becoming a productive member of society.
