Wiley Center

The Wiley Center is a 30-bed Residential Program for boys

Here, youth are helped in two residence halls, Kent Bewley Home for Boys & Rodney Atkins Home for Boys. Each is designed to house up to 20 youth. This is a highly structured program for adolescent boys between the ages of 11 and 18. This facility was first built in 1954-1955 and replaced the old orphanage. In 2008 and 2009, two identical residence halls — the Bewley residence hall and the Rodney Atkins residence — replaced the older facilities. These modern facilities have their own kitchen and study areas, large group gathering rooms, baths and private bedrooms. Each of the four corners of both buildings has a covered porch.

The facility sits atop a picturesque hill on a 150-acre campus. The average length of stay is 4-6 months, although this time may be extended based on the needs of the youth. The goal for each youth is be reunited with his family or a foster family if his family is not a safe resource.

Other key components of service include Christian life activities, individual and group counseling, family counseling, alcohol and drug education, adventure-based counseling, adaptive living and independent-living skills training.

Eligible youth are boys between the ages of 11 and 18, with an intelligence quotient of 70 or above. Those requiring daily medical attention or care in a secure facility are not eligible.
