They have now moved back to Vermont and reside in Essex Jct.

The Fold

The Fold

The Fold Family Ministries provides affordable Christ-centered residential care for up to 25 teens, ages 13-17. We offer a new beginning for both teens and their parents in crisis. Our motto is, “Changing Lives, Renewing Hope, Restoring Families; One Son and One Daughter at a Time.” Over the years, hundreds of at-risk teens have turned their lives in a new direction, distraught parents have been encouraged and fractured families have been reconciled. Many parents have found The Fold to be the answer to their prayers. Through God’s love and grace, teens formerly headed in a wrong direction have found hope and healing and gone on to successful careers, marriages, families, and life within our communities. Parents who have formerly felt unequipped as role models have learned skills to help them become effective leaders in their homes.
