Testimonials

“I am haunted each and ever day by memories of torture, neglect, and abuse from that school. If parents ‘punished’ their children only some of the ways as this institution did, the children would be in protective services immediately.  The idea of helping troubled teens is great but the practices and methods used by The Family Foundation School are unjust, immoral, and inhuman.” 
- Jonathan Bowen, Survivor of The Family School
