My son was raped in this facility and made fun off by staff and kids in facility. Take caution before you send your child here. They are only there for the money and will do whatever it takes to protect themselves. Old staff like Ms Mary from brewers cottage will make inappropriate comments and being she's black, she will protect the blacks whether they are right or wrong. Beware!!! Since the 1900's children have hung themselves here!!! Check reviews 1st!!!!!

I was a student at Boys Republic High School in the 1980s. I was molested by a staff member, taken to his home on the weekend and forced to perform sexual acts. It took many years for me to confront the Administration, they refused to take any responsibility. They had lawyers immediately say the statute of limitations was over and I could do nothing. There was no sympathy, no offer of counseling, no acknowledgement of any pain or damage caused.

don't spend a penny on this charity,
