Leathers Cottage is a cottage for the older boys in our residential program, aged 10-16. 

Built in 1971 and named for Dr. and Mrs. Thomas Leathers, Leathers is one of our oldest cottages. Dr. Leathers overcame adversity as a youth and gave so that others would have the opportunity to find a meaningful and satisfying life.


Residents of Leathers enjoy a large, open grassy area right outside their front door, perfect for numerous outdoor activities. Our main focus is to help lead the child and family through their trauma to place of healing and happiness.
