the CHARIS WOODS program
charis = grace
4Families is in the process of developing Charis Woods, a four-phase residential program designed for boys aged 13-17 who are struggling and making bad choices for their lives while living at home.
Phase 1: Reconciliation – through living with others within our program
Phase 2: Relearning – through our education program
Phase 3: Redirection – through our vocational program
Phase 4: Restoration – through our spiritual program
Our Charis Woods program is designed to equip each young man and his family with the tools needed to be successful in walking on a new path and to help him to understand the plan that God has for his life. Through an intricate weaving of faith and ministry, activities, counseling, teaching, coaching, group sessions, personal relationships, and involvement of parents throughout the program, we create an arena which brings healing in the lives of our residents and their families.
Charis, meaning grace, is interwoven throughout our program to help our residents understand that they are worth more than their mistakes and that true life is about more than material goods and their self-seeking goals.
