Wiley Center

The Wiley Center is a 30-bed Residential Program for boys

Here, youth are helped in two residence halls, Kent Bewley Home for Boys & Rodney Atkins Home for Boys. Each is designed to house up to 20 youth. This is a highly structured program for adolescent boys between the ages of 11 and 18. This facility was first built in 1954-1955 and replaced the old orphanage. In 2008 and 2009, two identical residence halls -- the Bewley residence hall and the Rodney Atkins residence -- replaced the older facilities. These modern facilities have their own kitchen and study areas,large group gathering rooms, baths and private bedrooms. Each of the four corners of both buildings has a covered porch.


The facility sits atop a picturesque hill on a 150-acre campus. The average length of stay is 4-6 months, although this time may be extended based on the needs of the youth. The goal for each youth is be reunited with his family or a foster family if his family is not a safe resource. 

Other key components of service include Christian life activities, individual and group counseling, family counseling, alcohol and drug education, adventure-based counseling, adaptive living and independent-living skills training.

Eligible youth are boys between the ages of 11 and 18, with an intelligence quotient of 70 or above. Those requiring daily medical attention or care in a secure facility are not eligible.
