In short, I am very proud of the woman I am today, and so is my family. New Haven gave me a fresh start at life and with that fresh start, I was able to accomplish more than I could have ever imagined. Every opportunity I have had since New Haven has been a testament to the realization that I am an extremely capable and worthy woman with so much to offer the world and there is nothing more valuable than living with that awareness!

Each student will be given the opportunity to explore a new passion or rediscover an activity that may have been put aside while they are at New Haven.
New Haven participates in various service projects both locally and within the community about two times per month. We do this to provide opportunities to focus on something outside your own experience.
Twice per month, you will have the opportunity to go off campus for a long adventure day. These activities include a variety of outdoor excursions as well as local community fun.
When applicable, New Haven will support you in finding a job that supports your personal growth.
Students’ Favorite Places
Often our students get to help plan the activities that they are going to in the community. Some of our students favorite spots include: bridal veil falls, skating rinks, arcades, puppy store, all abilities park, movie theaters, soda shops, and trampoline parks.
When you come to New Haven, you will reside in one of our community houses and experience day-to-day activities with approximately fifteen other students. Bedrooms are shared with one to three roommates, and room assignments rotate often so you can get to know each of your housemates. Each community has its own team of clinicians, residential staff and a representative from school and nursing that make up your treatment team.
You also get to know other New Haven students through school, in groups and other activities on campus. Our two campuses are about 30 minutes apart. You may interact with students from the other campus when participating in sports or campus-wide activities.
Frequently Asked Questions
Students Answering Students
“I was worried I wouldn’t be able to do art or have my music. I was so happy when I found out I could bring my guitar and there was an art class. I worked on really cool art projects that I know will help me with my portfolio when I go to college. I love that I can play my guitar and draw in my spare time. I think it is really healing.” ~ Cassie, age 15
I didn't leave a perfect child, but I did leave more open to the process of investigating myself. It saved my life.
