Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $44,717)

The Education Program of Father Maloney's Boys' Haven offers middle and high school curricula for up to thirty abandoned, abused or neglected boys living in their campus residential treatment program. Most students are working well below their academic grade level when they enter the program and many have Special Education needs. In addition to their academic deficits, they suffer from a wide range of disabilities including ADHD (attention deficit disorder (hyperactivity), bi-polar disorder and other mental disorders, Tourette's Syndrome, behavior disabilities (conduct disorders, emotional disorders, post-traumatic stress disorders) and learning disabilities (dyslexia, mild autism, language and visual perception, reading comprehension, written expression, and poor math skills). The immediate goal for the program is to bring students up to grade level before placing them in a regular school setting. The long-term goal is for residents to earn their high school diplomas, prepare for further studies, enter the workforce or qualify for the armed services. NCA/NCF
