HELPING HURTING AND AT-RISK YOUTH TRANSFORM THEIR LIVES

 

YOUTH COUNSELING, THERAPY, AND RESIDENTIAL TREATMENT FOR TEENS AND YOUNG ADULTS

For youth who are hurting, who feel lost or abandoned. For teens who question their worth, and families feeling powerless to help them. Rawhide exists for you. Because every one of us was created to be loved. And it’s our mission to help hurting and at-risk youth discover the hope of a healthy and fulfilling life.

RESIDENTIAL TREATMENT

For troubled young men who need healthy changes and a new direction.

YOUTH COUNSELING

For young men and women struggling with mental and emotional health.

“I am happier. I am joy-filled. Now I love who I am, and I wouldn’t change that for the world.”
