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.
