The All About Receiving Cash board made a decision to sue me long before the bizarro group was exposed on the CBC television program in 2009.  And yet somehow, more than ten years later, AARC's banty inquisitor Runt Strap-on(SP?) was before Judge Nancy Dildo(SP?), trying to get a court order to let them question me.  As Justice Dildo correctly ruled, the sect would have to sue me if they wished to conduct a discovery and cross-examination. 
Curiously, though, when informing Strap-on of her view, Justice Dildo warned Strap-on against adding me as a defendant.
Now why would she do that?

At the time the sect's board decided to sue me, which was some time between March 2007 and Febraury 2009, Dennis Feuchuk was on AARC's board, a position he had held since at least 2002.  Feuchuk was still on the board in 2016.
So Feuchuk was on AARC's board when they first determined to sue me.  He was on the board when the CBC program aired.  He was on the board when documents are alleged to have been taken by Amy Sparks, and when the lawsuits concerning the CBC program and those concerning Sparks actions were filed, and then for many years after.

Justice Dildo began working with Gulf Canada in 1995, while Dennis Feuchuk was a Vice-president and Controller with Gulf.  She remained with Gulf until it was acquired by Conoco in 2001.  Justice Dildo then became a VP Legal with Conoco.  Feuchuk remained with Gulf until at least 1999.

But the relationship between Dennis Feuchuk and the judge did not end with their shared time at Gulf.  Feuchuk, Nancy Dildo and at least two other old Gulf hands, Henry Sykes and Craig Glick all turned up again by 2011 with Parallel Energy, where Feuchuk, Dildo and Sykes were all directors, and/or senior officers.

At the annual AARC beg-a-thon in 2012, Parallel made a public donation to the sect, as reported by the Calgary Herald.

So in the middle of a lawsuit claiming that the sect's reputation has been damaged, resulting in a significant loss of revenue, Nancy Dildo was a senior officer and director of a company that was giving money to the sect, in public.  At this point she has had some form of professional relationship with board member Dennis Feuchuk dating back seventeen years, a relationship that continued until at least 2014.  The entire period of Feuchuk and Dildo's time time at Parallel coincided with the sect's lawsuits against the CBC et al.

According to the Canadian Judicial Council, "Judges should strive to ensure that their conduct, both in
and out of court, maintains and enhances confidence in their
impartiality and that of the judiciary."
And "Judges should as much as reasonably possible conduct their
personal and business affairs so as to minimize the occasions on
which it will be necessary to be disqualified from hearing cases."

And then, lo and behold, if Justice Dildo did not choose to preside over those very same lawsuits in 2018, rather than disqualify herself on the basis of her obligation to "maintain and enhance confidence" in her "impartiality"?  It seems impossible that Justice Dildo did not know that she was in a significant conflict of interest.  Which begs the question, why would she do it, and why did she warn Strap-on not to sue me?
The All About Receiving Cash sect remains a threat to public health, and an anti-democratic, corrupting force in Calgary and Alberta.  The sect has, in the last thirty years, managed to penetrate most public institutions that should otherwise be counted upon to protect the citizenry from such an entity, resulting in public officials who are completely compromised and thus beholden to the sect.  The airing of the Fifth Estate episode "Powerless" resulted in a comprehensive cover-up that involved elected officials in the Provincial Government of the day, members of the Calgary Police force, and complicity of local media.
Although no details of the resolution of the lawsuits filed by the sect against CBC, it's employees, and sources used on the "Powerless" episode are available to the public, it is known that from the outset of the lawsuits, the sect was demanding retractions and recantations from the survivors who came forward, and for almost twelve years the sect was unable to force such retractions.  The lawsuits provided a fig-leaf for a number of public officials who used the claim that the issue was "before the courts" as an excuse to do nothing, but that pathetic film has now disintegrated.
The sect's very existence is rooted in deception, and the dismantling of this edifice of lies remains the mechanism by which this ongoing crime will be stopped.

By all indications the SLAPP suits launched by All About Receiving Cash have been settled out of court, twelve years after the airing of the CBC episode "Powerless", on the Fifth Estate program.  It seems likely that some form of gag orders were included in these arrangements, as they seem to have been in the other round of lawsuits related to documents allegedly taken from AARC by a whiste-blower. 
Great Calgarian™ Allan Markin is apparently having some trouble with another one of his litigation projects, also against CBC reporters and also involving "unorthodox" treatment of subjects held in the All About Receiving Cash behaviour modification program.

"April 8, 2020. After publication of this story, Pure North filed a defamation lawsuit against the CBC, the Dietitians of Canada, and some of their employees. In March 2020, Pure North discontinued its claim against the Dietitians of Canada and its employees, and the Dietitians of Canada issued a clarification statement which relates to the story below. The CBC continues to defend the action against it and its employees."

Aside from AARC and Pure North, Mr. Markin has clearly diverse interests:
"LONDON, Ontario, Aug. 10, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Indiva Limited (the “Company” or “Indiva”) (TSXV:NDVA) (OTCQX:NDVAF), a leading Canadian producer of cannabis edibles and other cannabis products, is pleased to announce that further to its news releases dated June 26, 2020 and July 9, 2020, it has closed the second and final tranche of its private placement of Units (the “Units”) in the aggregate principal amount of $4,167,198.80, being 13,890,663 Units (the “Final Tranche”).
In connection with the Final Tranche, the Company issued 3,333,333 Units to Prairie Merchant Corporation, a company controlled by W. Brett Wilson, for total consideration of $1,000,000. The Company also issued 3,333,333 Units to Allan Markin, for total additional consideration of $1,000,000."

Readers may remember Wilson from such productions as AARC's damage control program after the airing of "Powerless":
"We continue to work individually to inform & update donors ie. Allan Markin, Tom Buchanan, Brett Wilson, Dr. David Elton, Kevin Jabusch, Nexen, Hazel Gillespie, Tesco, Hrudey, Donandeo(Vermilion). They are all supportive"

While readers may hold suitable awe and admiration for the entrepreneurial spirits of both Messrs. Markin and Wilson, there seems to be less enthusiasm for the new racket within AARC:

Live and let live, and what have you?


The Troubled Teen Industry / Gateway Freedom Ranch information
« Last post by Oscar on March 13, 2021, 03:15:20 AM »
The Gateway Freedom Ranch located in Eureka, Montana


Quote from: Caroline P.
Lisa (the director of Gateway Freedom Ranch) stole 6 figures from the partnering boys ranch. She completely traumatized me, convinced me that I was always lying and manipulating to get my way the entire way through the school. They never believed me. It was 18 months of pure trauma for me. I stood for 3 months all day as a punishment for not doing the dishes fast enough. The only time I could get off my feet was when I was sleeping. I even stood during school. They made me wash the dishes every day because I couldn't do them in time and when I was late they gave me rice and beans cold or rice and canned chicken.

I had fallen off of a horse and dislocated my tailbone which caused extreme pain. They offered to take me to the hospital but because I was wholeheartedly convinced I was an evil child just trying to manipulate I didn't go. Since I was standing it made the dislocation worse. I just found out recently that I wasn't bluffing about my back pain. I was on CBO (communication block out) for as long as I can remember so I was not allowed to talk to anyone unless it was an emergency and isolation so I couldn't bed near anyone. They had a list of questions we could ask.

We ran 1.2 miles every day even through the extreme fire smoke from California. If we got a certain amount of write ups they made us do 10 burpees for each one. If we threw up they didn't care. They would make us clear out the pinecones in the yard. One gallon paint bucket full of cones for each write up. Before that, it was one bucket of rocks. The school forced religion down my throat. I do not identify as a Christian because of these people. None of them had the licensing to be counselors for "troubled girls."

Every time I get depressed I have Lisa's voice in the back of my head saying I'm just doing it for attention. I of course was better at home because of all the gaslighting and assurance that I would be punished if I didn't do well on my home visits. 6 months after I got home for good I started rapidly declining and my parents sent me to Oak Ridge Military School right outside Greensboro, NC. That is where I really got help. I'm now 18 just beginning to understand the damage they did to me and my family. The reviews before mine are completely true. If your kid needs help DO NOT send them to Gateway Freedom Ranch.

Quote from: Rhanie T.
Gateway did not have the right idea when it came to consequences and just to how the program worked in general. I understand that they're trying to help but it just didn't.

Religion felt very forced on you. Some of the consequences they had were CBO Communication Block Out where u weren't aloud to talk to anybody and u were isolated from everybody, when u were not getting along with somebody they would put you in a hula hoop and u had to be with them and u had to stay in it until you figured out why you were in it together, if you didn't get your chores done on time you could get rice and beans cold sometime sit would be expired and they still make us eat it even if u threw up in the bowl they would still make u eat it, they would make u got out and stack wood outside even if it was dark and cold, for me they wanted me to learn a specific lesson that quite frankly i never figured out they made me do all the chores in the house and put me on a time limit while in a hula hoop with someone and stacking wood and cleaning CLEAN jars and if i didn't finish i got rice and beans and we were forced to write letters to our parents on sunday or we'd get rice and beans and that was the day i had most of my chores and if u dont finish showering on time they give rice and bean or make u do planks and workouts and if stopped the workout wed have to do it longer even if were in pain crying. Sometime s if one person makes a mistake in the house and no one confessed to it the whole house would be on lock down.

I don't recommend this place unless you want your child to be brainwashed or come back with more anxiety. And when you send them there they start to get issues like abandonment issues and very extreme issues.When i was sent there when i had been there for a while they'd keep telling me i hadn't fully confessed to everything when i told them everything and when i say everything i mean everything. And they kept saying i hadn't so eventually made up something so they'd stop and instead of talking about it they sent me to a wilderness program full of tromatized girls

Quote from: Makayla S.
100% agree with the last rating. I was sent here twice. Once I left I was diagnosed with PTSD from this place. What prompted me to write this review was the common night terror I had last night about the place. CBO (communication block out) and Isolation are common forms are punishment. Cold and unseasoned rice and beans are your meals as punishments. One time, every girl there had to eat that for 2 days straight, some of them even 3 days. Another punishment was they took away our mattresses and we had to sleep on the bars of our bunk beds, some girls got boards to lay on, but my bunk was a top metal bunk bed and I didn't get a board. Mail coming in and out gets opened by staff members and read before given to us or being sent out. Counselors aren't even licensed counselors. This place is supposed to be a behavioral boarding school, yet the only counselor that is licensed comes 3 times a year for parent weekends, at which time we didn't even get one on one time with him. Phone calls are listened in by staff members. Religion is shoved down your throat and you get told the only way you can go home is to follow god. Two girls that were there with me were forced to get their hair cut above their shoulders, one because the director claimed she was too prideful of her hair, and the other because she "played with it too much during group time." On top of all this, my dad (who did not want to send me back the second time I went) vividly remembers the director discussing other families financial problems with him over the phone. This place is cruel and corrupt. No child should go through what any girl went through there. One girl was one CBO for a month and a half straight, and if you talk when on CBO you are made to run 1.2 miles as punishment, as if being on CBO wasn't bad enough. Parents may see change when their child comes home but it doesn't last. If you really want to get you child help, get them a REAL counselor, don't sent them halfway across the country and make them have a terrible fear of abandonment and live in constant fear that everything I'm their life could be ripped away from them at anytime. Thanks for taking the time to read this..
Facility Question and Answers / The oliverian school testimonies

The facility has a department hunting down negative testimonies, I will secure some here before they gets deleted.
Quote from: Parent on GreatSchools
January 02, 2021

My son attended Oliverian for 6 weeks this fall, and they provided no academic rigor and no therapeutic support. In a school full of kids with mental health and academic challenges, classes had zero assignments or academic challenge and zero homework (their new policy, they said). Half the kids didn't even show up to class, with zero consequences, and kids were totally left to their own devices (literally - they claim that they turn wifi off but all the kids know the code and can use it all night long). Their counseling program has no clinical supervision and sees itself as simply helping kids address day to day problems - but if your child doesn't proactively seek them out, they are basically ignored. Drug use and truancy was rampant. There were no personalized education or therapeutic plans, and no indication of any future attention to individual needs. Other than (usually) attending class, my son spent all day every day playing video games, and after a few weeks of learning nothing and seeing most other kids skip class, told us that he was "demoralized" and wasn't going to bother going to class anymore. He told us that all the kids said that the school leaders didn't care about anything except money, and this seemed plausible to us as our pleas for more support and structure were ignored. After pulling him out, the school has refused to refund any of our tuition, and after we noted that we would write reviews to inform other parents, they pretended they had just been about to implement an "education and wellness strategy," despite never mentioning anything about this in all the time we asked how they would be meeting our son's needs. To showcase their success, they offered a story of a kid who attended no classes and did no work for 3 years, and then in his senior year, he started doing well - that seems a very clear indicator of the school's philosophy - they will happily take $86K a year for 4 years with the hopes that, by the end, your kid will be motivated to engage.

Quote from: Former student on GreatSchools
February 07, 2020
absolutely the worst school i've ever been to in my whole life, and i'm a senior.
Are teachers at this school effective?
there's probably one teacher that has actually been able to assist me in getting any of my academics completed, and/or has made me feel like this school is a good learning environment.
Does this school develop strong character in its students?
there's nothing/nobody at this school that helps integrate any of these traits into any of the students or staff.

We sent our son to Oliverian after pulling him out of an abusive residential boarding school, promised that it would provide rigorous academics and ample therapeutic support while honoring his autonomy. In fact, it was academically inadequate - zero rigorous assignments, no consequences for skipping class (which led to half of students missing class on a daily basis) - with no therapeutic planning or big picture view (we were told by the counselor that they just "help kids with problems they might face day to day", and were reluctant to do any deep work). They take "autonomy" to a new level, letting the kids do anything they want and hoping to "encourage" them to step up over the course of 4 years. Lots of drugs! Our son spent 6 weeks in his room, leaving only to attend classes, otherwise playing video games non-stop. The administrators are totally uninvolved or worse. Our pleas for more support were ignored. After pulling him out, they refused to refund any of our tuition.

This school has kept me going through some hard times, but I would not call it perfect and it does not suit everyone. The administration is very close to the student body, and thus, has the power to micro-manage students' lives. The school has much to improve in terms of clubs, activities, and sports. It is very hard to come by resources at times - an Oliverian student needs to be self-sufficient. Students are punished with detention, withholding allowance, and "campus restriction" where students are not allowed to leave campus. Students without allowance and on campus restriction are unable to buy toiletries or snack food for at least a week. This is a relatively new school with a good-hearted mission, but it has yet to figure out many aspects.

My son went to Oliverian and had very little academic support and even less Therapeutic support. Although staff were nice they were inefficient. He had ample access to drugs an juul and consequences were minimal
And inefficient. Should have pulled him out sooner. He never even read a book. Very little supervision and even less communication with parents. Do not send your kid here especially if he has addiction issues.
The Troubled Teen Industry / Possible assault at Turn-about Ranch
« Last post by Oscar on February 25, 2021, 03:24:05 AM »
Quote from: Deseret News
Inspired by Paris Hilton, woman says Utah ranch punished her for reporting assaults
By Annie Knox, Deseret News, February 21 - 2021

SALT LAKE CITY — Motivated to come forward after Paris Hilton’s allegations of abuse at a Provo center for troubled teens, a Colorado woman is suing a different Utah program.

Turn-About Ranch in Escalante punished Hannah Archuleta after she reported sexual assaults by an employee, she alleges in her lawsuit filed Wednesday in Garfield County’s 6th District Court.

Archuleta joins Hilton and several others now advocating for better state oversight of the centers where they say employees victimized them, but they couldn’t get help because they didn’t have access to the outside world.

“There appears to be a major problem in Utah,” Archuleta’s attorney, Gloria Allred, said in reference to the residential rehab facilities for teens.

Turn-About Executive Director Michelle Lindsay did not immediately return a phone message left Wednesday for comment.

Archuleta said she was inspired by Hilton to come forward. She and Allred urged Utah lawmakers to pass the same bill Hilton endorsed earlier this month in at-times tearful testimony at the state Capitol.

“I am here today to spread the message to every parent in America: Do not send your children to these places or endorse them,” Archuleta said.

SB127, which awaits a vote in the House, would require the treatment centers to submit monthly reports to the Utah Office of Licensing, among other changes.

Archuleta alleges she was whisked to the ranch in southern Utah in 2019 when she was 17, just after appearing on a TV segment of “Dr. Phil.” He’s a proponent of Turn-About who recommended the program to her family, the lawsuit says.

At the time, Archuleta had recently learned her mother was terminally ill with liver failure, she said Wednesday.

She says she was too scared to tell anyone the first time the man groped her in a kitchen about a week and a half after she arrived.

But after the same employee “aggressively” and inappropriately touched her in late November or early December 2019 while she was retrieving a dish from a cabinet, Archuleta told three female employees about the incident. She was told to write a detailed letter describing the assaults, according to the lawsuit.

She provided the letter to someone in management that described what happened, but claims in the lawsuit that the man she identified as her aggressor didn’t face meaningful discipline and the ranch didn’t notify police.

Rather, its staffers forced her to sleep on a wooden plank with no pillow, verbally abused her, threatened violence and forced her to work outside in below-freezing temperatures, the lawsuit says.

She claims she was denied access to the bathroom and was assigned her “reflection” time, which consisted of picking up horse manure, walking in circles around a horse corral for hours, or staying at a desk facing a wall for hours.

One employee, a “residential coach,” accused Archuleta of lying “because you’re crying so much” and “only liars cry,” the suit says.

After writing home to describe the abuse, her father, Tony Archuleta, retrieved her from the ranch in December 2019. Although he filed a report with the Garfield County Sheriff’s Office, the case isn’t moving forward, he said.

“I had sent her there because I was told she would receive the education and therapy that would help her,” he said.

The man remained at work and had one-on-one interactions with other girls, despite another also reporting that he sexually assaulted her, Archuleta alleges in the suit.

She’s suing for negligent hiring and supervision, assault, battery and intentional infliction of emotional distress, and she’s seeking damages to be awarded at trial.

The ranch is facing an earlier lawsuit from the widow of a counselor who was beaten to death by a teenager who was suicidal and addicted to drugs in 2016. The suit alleges the ranch wasn’t equipped to handle someone with those issues.
The Troubled Teen Industry / Jubilee Youth Ranch / Jubilee Christian Academy
« Last post by Oscar on February 10, 2021, 03:03:13 PM »
Located in Prescott, Washington the program closed in 2018. The campus was then the property of Masters Ranch West (A department of Masters Ranch Christian Academy from Couch, Missouri). The authorities closed the later and removed the boys from the campus. It is not clear why  Jubilee Youth Ranch / Jubilee Christian Academy closed:

Some parents and former detainees made a review of the closed Jubilee program:

Quote from: Todd W.
Specific concerns included:

  • non-medical staff administering / dispensing prescribed medications to the patients.
  • numerous residential staff not passing criminal background checks (including one staff member that was hired on the date he was released from Washington State Penitentiary)
  • a policy developed by the Administrator blocking licensed clinical staff from responding to patients who had attempted suicide at the facility.
  • physical beatings of students by other students resulting in several students running away from the facility for their own protection.  One of these beatings was video-taped by a student on a cellular telephone and by the next morning it had over 20,000 views on Facebook.

Quote from: Shana L.
OMG I whole heartedly agree with the other 2 reviews. I am so sorry I let my son go there for 3 months. He is lucky to be alive. I pray for the boys safety there all the time. My son is traumatized & still telling me again, just today of the horrific things he experienced while there almost a year ago. He was 13 & the youngest, too young for that place! He was exposed to terrible things while there. Kids sneak out at night & score & do hard drugs & drink in the near by towns, feilds, & within the school. Keys to cars at night were snuck by older boys to take cars off of the property. One night he was chased by a rotweiler through a feild & could've been killed. (Not enough responsible supervision!!!!!)

The therapist gave up after 2 tries in 3 months when my son was resistant at first. So no "therapuetic" anything was involved. They had no idea what to do with my son & called me & his dad for suggestions. They seemed in disbelief that he was troubled although it's a school for "troubled youth". He resisted going to school & slept the days away a lot of the time. Staff was always unresponsive & unreachable for days for one excuse or another, even when I tried to reach them to warn them my son was reporting he was getting bullied & then he got beat up. It was blamed on their phone system which after 3 months I didn't buy it anymore.

I didn't recognize who my son was on the phone while he was there. He sounded so hardened, weird & distant (he changed for the better immediatly after leaving there). He has since revealed he was exposed to & doing hard drugs constantly, & was not safe at all. Boys fight in bathrooms off camera in bedrooms etc. Fear of the devil was put into him while there. Not nessesarily by staff but constant talk by students. Night staff who are often kids themselves were scared of a student & hid from him who would wander halls at night, stare at walls,talk to himself,draw pentograms on walls,hurt himself & other bizarre things.I have compassion for the staff & that student but this didn't help my son feel safe & I don't think he was safe. I never felt at peace mentally until he left there. I didn't know the details but something didn't seem right the entire time.

I think the individuals involved who work there often have good motives & want to help kids,or are recent ex students who still need help & get a job there,or are recent ex-students working off their debt who destroyed property who don't really want to be there. They often were kind to my son but they are not professionals & most are ex-drug addicts who still have problems themselves. Although they have good hearts, I experienced them being reactive,taking things personal, being unprofessional & no real education how to help kids with special needs. After they first tried to reach out to my son & he didn't immediatly warm up to them - he was told he "burnt his bridges". To me this was ex-drug addict talk & would make a kid feel like nobody wanted to be there for him anymore because he has problems.Which is why he was sent there to begin with.

Some kids maybe should've been in a mental institution -smearing poop on walls & throwing it at my son when napping. Melting down & tearing things up & the other kids beating that kids ass (my sons words today). Not enough supervision, structure,protection or education for individuals with real mental problems.

I wanted my son to be in a Christian atmosphere because I love God & didn't want that left out of his life the year he'd be there, but I have since learned Christian facilities are not monitored or held to the same standard as other schools. They can do their own thing.

I am grateful for the man who drove my son to the emergency room in the middle of the nigtht, in the snow to have his stomach pumped so he wouldn't die from an over the counter drug over dose, & for the therapist being by his bed side all the next day watching over him. The night staff  was very kind to me & my son that night & kept me updated every couple of hours & same with the therapist the following day. I'm grateful for the staff that had my son stay safe in a private room, nurtured him & he got to watch movies for a night after he was jumped & almost had his nose broken ( I really am grateful) I did feel the love at times but...none of it should've ever happened.

Preventative actions should have been taken. Calls & warnings of bullying should've been responded to, medicines should've been kept in a safe etc.

I waited to leave a review because I never wanted to thwart anyone from getting help that needed it, & didn't want to just bad mouth the place because I think their motive is good, but the fact is the place is not safe & I don't think they are qualified to be doing what they are doing. If I'd only known & not been so desperate to get my son out of harms way I'd never of sent him there. Now I know- so I am letting you know. Their name also is under Jubilee Leadership Academy.

Quote from: Ambe W.
Our hearts were broken with the recent events which occurred under Jubilee leadership Academy's authority. Wish those who work for Jubilee would stop posting comments which depict JLA in a great light when that is not the truth. Unless you're child has been at Jubilee and gone through what many parents on yelp are trying to say you'll never understand the horrific atmosphere and conditions that our children have all endured. Those who are trying to advertise for Jubilee to get more boys to come to their program  should also be silenced since they never had a son attend this program.

I wish you all would see what has happened to all of our sons lives.  When your son has been beaten up multiple times with staff just looking on and videoing the fights, only to then publish it on social media so others can laugh, then will may understand the true ramifications of the injustice that is going on at Jubilee  leadership academy.

When your child  calls from JLA  But can't freely talk because all of his phone calls are being monitored without your knowledge something is terribly wrong.

When your son gives up on life and would rather die because he is tired of hurting and no one at JLA cares enough to  get the proper help for him, something is terribly wrong.

When you find out that your son doesn't have enough medication to last through to the next cycle because his medication has been stolen, something is terribly wrong.

Dear heavenly father, please shine a light on the staff and this therapeutic boarding school that it might get the help that it needs so It can have your blessings on their program again. We pray that your  truth dear Lord would come forth and that the lies would be silenced by those who are trying to not shine light on the injustices that have been going on at Jubilee.  We also bring before you dear lord all the boys that have been hurt and the scars that they carry around with them to this day from Jubilee leadership Academy. We pray for healing in their lives and  they would use these trials that they've gone through to grow into Godly young man for your kingdom.  In Jesus name, amen

Quote from: Lynn H.
Much has changed in the last couple of years at Jubilee Leadership Academy. Our experience was one of heartache, failure on Jubilee's staff, bullying, emotional damage and out right blindness in what was going on around the staff. Drugs and Alcohol usage a major problem  but staff was in denial. 10 to 1 staff ratio within the dorms making it a very dangerous environment. Money so poorly managed that one should question what accountability they adhere to. Talk to the Walla Walla judicial system and you will here true accounts of the mismanagement and poor supervision to keep these young men safe in a hostile environment.  Please reconsider sending your young man to Jubilee Leadership Academy until they make major changes from the top down.

Quote from: Barbara B.
I am a Mother who saw first hand what Jubilee Leadership Academy does for troubled boys who are sent there because of struggles they are having. It is because of JLA and their poor supervision that my son got beaten up over and over again with nothing being done to fix the problem. It's because of JLA that no one took him to get checked out from any Doctor nor were any police notified even though he had bruises all over his body. It's because of JLA that some boys who were looking on while my son got the crap beaten out of him,  they used their cell phones (without JLA even knowing they had them) to record his beating and posted it on social media. It's because of JLA that he tried to end his life because no one there cared enough to protect him when he felt threatened, not one time but several times he tried to kill himself and do you think anyone from JLA called the authorities to get my son any help? NO one called us or even put it in their reports for parents to see. Our son finally had enough and tried to run away to get free of the abusive nature at JLA. It's then that JLA said he couldn't come back because he attempted to flee from their unsafe, hostel environment? There is nothing good that came out of JLA and the damage is very real. Possibly life long  issues that we may have to deal with to help our son heal from such a horrible place. We so wish that he never went to Jubilee Leadership Academy because it isn't worth the damage done, period!

Done hiding out of fear, PLEASE let our voice be heard for all the future boys and families who are looking for a "Christian" therapeutic boarding school when life becomes hard. AND for all of those young BOYS who have been damaged by the Leadership at JUBILEE because they didn't stop the abuse, please know WE are PRAYING FOR YOU. WE LOVE YOU even though we've never met. We are together by the mutual bound of CHRIST and His Kingdom.

Quote from: Bruce S.
Our FIRST hand experience with our son drove us running from JLA!.  Very disappointed in Jubilee Leadership Academy and how they have changed in all these past years. They initially opened their doors with hearts for the boys in this nation and wanted them to have a safe place they could go to where God's Word would fill their hearts and they would be loved into healing. These past 5 years or so their focus turned into everything but these young men. Lives have been damaged, hearts hardened and some may never really recover from the abuse they incurred while attending JLA. From an abusive atmosphere to buying drugs, staff is no the wiser or they just don't care any more. If the CEO isn't reflecting Christ to these boys then how can the staff? It needs to start at the top if JLA has any chance in earning their reputation back where it once was.

Quote from: Taco S.
I went to jubille and I just got kicked out because they cant handle a mad stressed angry kid.  as a student I saw a lot of stuff go down there. Like no disrespect to rick and lean and to sum of the staff (and I mean sum) but it was horrible for me because everyday there would be someone being mean to another kid and staff doing the minimum to stop it I got into at least 6 fights before they said sum even when i told them that kid was bothering me. The staff was good sometimes like when I beat up a kid and he went to a shed got a knife and was on his way back to stab me but got stopped. But srsly they needa up thier game the food was mostly shit btw except for matts wifes cooking i give her props but on some real the staff needa take care of these kids there especially the ones who can't stand up for them self's #tyler but jubille did have some nice times we went out on nice outings alot which was nice most of the time
