Never go here. I was in child help for 6 months in 2017 and I was abused physically and emotionally. I’m not sure if they still work there but here’s 3 staff members who are the worst: Thomas, Ariel, and Angie. Please don’t send your child there, pick a different one. Thank you
Best placement I’ve ever been to. The staff were really supportive, the children still felt like kids! In a lot of placements residents don’t feel like normal kids and they have nothing to do. At Childhelp you felt like you were home. Huge campus, you got to go outside and ride bikes, the education was amazing, the riding program was so much fun, the therapists really cared, and there was so much support there you couldn’t feel alone. The only problem I can think of is that Childhelp was so amazing that you didn’t want to leave! I know you get the help you need and people go home and stay home. I have been in 9 placements and this one had the most impact on me. Definitely send your child here if you want them home happy and healthy. -Sarah Sussman
My daughter came home worse than when she left. She was bullied repeatedly, after it had been brought to there attention. She was kicked and scratched repeatedly by other children and staff did nothing to stop these incidents from happening. I wouldn't recommend this facility to anyone with a troubled child. This facility has been under several investigations. It needs to be shut down!!
I worked at the VA Lignum Village for many year, at first as child care supervisor. Then in reception and Human resources. I loved my job! And I truly miss it. I believe that children are in wonderful caring hands here. The therapeutic programs were amazing. How many residential programs have horseback riding, a gym a swimming pool... PLUS nature! AND people who want to help THEM HEAL. ( nursing, therapist!! awesome!) These Children grew in size and spirit every day while in this village. A village of people who cared for them. 100%
