Trained professional staff teach teens how to become productive citizens through career counseling, caseworker and caretaker support, and by creating a plan for transitioning back into their community. Timothy Hill Academy features two residential campuses, in New York and Tennessee. Each campus provides a safe place for boys to work through and resolve the issues that have thrown their lives out of balance.
