Utah Youth Village
Our parent company, Utah Youth Village, is one of the largest and oldest charities in Utah helping troubled children. It is the only organization in Utah certified to use the Teaching-Family Model, perhaps the most thoroughly researched treatment method for troubled children and families in use today. Those trained in the Teaching-Family Model provide security and love while teaching consistency and respect.
