We enroll adolescent troubled boys ages 12-17, who are struggling with anger and self-destructive activities. New Hope Boys Home accepts new students on a year-round basis at our campus near Austin, Texas. We often have availability for immediate enrollment of your boy.
Inquire Now – When you call (830) 257-5714, we will discuss your son’s needs and your family’s situation, as well as answer your questions about our program. You will find that our program costs much less than other similar facilities, due to the generous support of donors and local churches. We’ll help you work through the admissions process, step by step.
Application and Enrollment Process
Our enrollment process begins with an interview with our Intake Coordinator to ensure that the prospective student is a candidate for our program. For the safety of the student and others, any potential student must have a physical and required blood work completed by a physician before enrollment.
Once we have an idea that your son will be a good match for our program, we will send you an Application along with additional forms required for enrollment. Once your son is accepted and all admissions criteria are met, we will work with you to set up the admission. Should transport be required, please let us know.
For Everyone’s Safety, We Do Not Enroll Boys Who:
- Have a serious mental or psychological illness
- Have demonstrated aggressive same-sex predatory behaviors
- Have significant developmental delay, brain damage or retardation
- Have uncontrollable fits of anger leading to someone being hurt
- Have been convicted of violent lawbreaking or arson
- Have a significant or communicable health condition or illness requiring ongoing care
- Have serious allergies (ask us)
Prosper Healthcare Lending
New Hope Boys Home has partnered with Prosper HealthCare Lending as a potential lender. Prosper HealthCare Lending simplifies the process of paying for our program. You’ll learn quite quickly if you qualify for a loan. Only apply after you have started the application process and we deem your son a good fit for our program. Ask us for the contact link.
Church or Civic Organization
Sometimes the church or civic organization that a parent belongs to will assist with treatment costs. Discussing your situation with the Pastor of your church or president of your group may lead to financial assistance.
Most families network with their friends and family to help raise the funds required for the program.
Please remember that even though Teen Challenge of Texas is a 501c(3) charitable organization, we are not able to provide a tax-deductible receipt for any payment that is designated towards a student’s tuition, board or other schooling costs. Undesignated gifts to our program’s general fund are tax-deductible.
Typically, insurance does not pay for any part of your boy’s time at New Hope Boys Home since we are licensed as a GRO (General Residential Operation) offering child care services, not a residential treatment center (such facilities often cost 2-3 times more than what we charge). In any event, you should contact your insurance provider.
