Reviews for Children And Youth Services Inc

Rating: 5 stars  

I became familiar with and provided advisory services to West Ridge Academy beginning a number of years ago. In this capacity, I was privileged to observe the care and concern demonstrated by individuals working there and by the organization as a whole. The highest recommendation I can give is that I would send my child there... and I would. I love their therapists and treatment programs. I love that the youth who attend West Ridge Academy can participate in 1A athletics. I love how the staff is so aware of each student's strengths and weaknesses and so intent upon helping each in any way they can. This is a great organization. It is now one of two organizations that I donate to.

Going to a program wasn't my first choice nor was it something I wanted to do. Having said that, West Ridge Academy saved my life.

I was abused by the staff members at West Ridge Academy. This charity is little more than a Mormon Gulag. The Mormon Church sends their "rebellious" teenagers there to be physically and mentally abused, by their unsupervised staff, forced to read from and memorize the Book of Mormon, and made to discuss sexual topics with Mormon clergy and missionaries. This place has been sued several times in several states for sexual abuse and other crimes against children.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Close it down.
