I used to work at heartlight ministries. I was overwhelmingly disappointed by the leadership and how things are run. Kids can still be helped but only because of the staff that know the kid. Many leadership decisions are made based on the desire to make money, instead of deciding what is best for the kids. Don't bring your kids here!

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

Change the people who run it and make the big decisions. Replace them with people who listen to their staff and actually care about the kids more than money.

Heartlight Ministries helped us immensely with the tough decision to send our son. The admissions counselors talked with us several times before we decided to enroll him. They shared so much about the heart of the program that we really felt comfortable with it and knew that we had found a good match for our son’s needs. The application and admission process went so smoothly because of their gracious attitudes and promptness in communicating with us. Heartlight Ministries is a first-rate program.

Overall this program is nothing more than an expensive behavior modification program. The psychological counseling was inexperienced. My child suffered with dysregulated thinking and an inability to establish a life narrative that spanned more than a few days. They didn't know what to do and after 11 months kicked her out , no graduation and sent us back a kid worse off than when she arrived. And all for about $60K. Make sure a program has the tools to help your child. That they even understand what's wrong. They should have been honest and turned us away at the start due to the lack of training.
