COST:

The cost of our unique Wilderness Program is $7,000.00.

There are no other wilderness programs as unique as New Hope, utilizing horses to do therapy with the young people, as well as daily counseling sessions. Our primary motive is to help these young people leave here with a total different mindset/heart change.

In order to insure a slot, it is essential to send a $1000.00 non-refundable deposit, which is applied to the overall cost upon arrival of the child. This deposit should be mailed as early as possible.. The purpose in the deposit is to avoid having to turn some other young person away, and then end up having an empty slot, which could have been filled. This is important to us since we only take a maximum of 5 at one given time, in order to maximize their success. The remaining $6,000.00 must be paid with the arrival of the child. The deposit should be made out to, and sent to:
