The Christian Focus of TreeHouse

Though we deal with our clients holistically, as a Christian organization we seek to help the youth and families we serve come to a living faith in Jesus Christ, to recognize the authority of the Word of God, and to apply Biblical Principles to all matters of faith and practice in their lives. We believe that this is central to life transformation.

Our expectations of all staff are that they live out their Christian faith and values in ways which are consistent with the teachings of Scripture. We expect staff to love God fully and others deeply. We also expect that staff be involved in a fellowship of believers for teaching, encouragement, support and accountability.
