Cookson Hills provides home, school, and therapy for kids who are at-risk.

For many kids, Cookson Hills is their childhood home. For others it’s a temporary home for about two years. All kids come here to live within a family. They enroll in school, they play sports, they make friends, they set the table, they laugh, they ride horses, they heal, and (we hope) they leave better than they came. It’s not fool-proof. It’s difficult. And, it’s worth it.

He brought me out into a spacious place; He rescued me because He delighted in me.

Psalm 18:19
