"As a juvenile court Judge, one major problem I face on a daily basis in the juvenile justice and child welfare system is finding appropriate out of home placements for children. The Bald Ridge Lodge is that alternative.
I directly place boys at the lodge on a regular basis as a safe, constructive, supervised 24-hour, fully staffed alternative to RYDC. I also use this state-of-the-art facility for weekend sanction program wherein a stay at the Lodge can be combined for community service Saturday and Sunday.
I have found this service, the Bald Ridge Lodge, to not only be an answer to an overwhelming problem, but an asset to our community."
