Mission Statement

The mission of Bald Ridge Lodge is to provide a safe haven and counseling in a therapeutic environment for youth who are in need of protection, direction, and supervision in a manner that nurtures the child, strengthens families, and allows the community to care for its own.

Description

Bald Ridge Lodge, Inc., is a non-profit Stabilization and Assessment Center for boys located in Forsyth County, Georgia which serves boys ages 12-21. We serve those who are in the custody of the Department of Family and Children Services or referred by the local Juvenile Court. Through partnerships with referring agencies, as well as families, we focus on family reunification and restoration. While at the Lodge, boys receive counseling, mentoring, community support and engage in positive activities. With the help of both State and local support, we opened our doors in August of 2008.
