Our Mission

The Blount Youth Home was established in 1983. Our mission is to provide a safe, nurturing, structured environment for young men 10 - 20 years old that require inner reconstruction. We teach them life skills that develop positive self-esteem, positive self-discipline, and leadership qualities as they prepare for successful transition back to their families and communities. Our therapeutic home environment strives to teach teamwork, ownership and respect. We provide the opportunity to experience real life values, to gain peace of mind, self assurance and spiritual enhancement.

RECONSTRUCTION

We teach young men the meaning of respect and how to show it in their daily lives in everything they do.

EDUCATION

The young men enter into a general studies program along with an additional training program while here.
