Doulos Ministries had a going concern comment in the FYE 2020 financial statements, however, a large gift was received after year end to eliminate the concern.

Shelterwood is a Christ-centered residential treatment facility for struggling teens. We provide a safe, structured and loving environment for teenagers dealing with behavioral and mental health conditions. For 40 years, we have transformed young lives and brought hope and restoration to families. Shelterwood is one of the few residential treatment centers to be awarded The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for Behavioral Health Care Accreditation and holds the distinguished designation as a NATSAP Gold Seal Recipient for Evidence-based Outcomes. Shelterwood’s on-campus High School offers coursework at a variety of academic levels. Each teen is surrounded by an interdisciplinary team of licensed therapists, certified addiction counselors, accredited teachers, mentors, and other Christian men and women devoted to helping them find their footing so they can stand firm in the truth of who they were created to be.

Each year, many of our students take an opportunity to volunteer in various ways and locations. Many students have traveled to Haiti to work in orphanages and others have spent time working with the underprivileged in Texas. While the experiences are short-term, the lessons learned last a lifetime. Seeing the world from a different perspective allows students to understand their own issues from a new, selfless viewpoint and its a catalyst for heart change.
Our ministry's founder passed away a few years ago after a long battle with cancer. He started Shelterwood in 1980 and invested all of his energy into developing leaders and caring for families. Richard had a special way about him, always eager to connect and care for others, and willing to talk to anybody. His conversations were always filled with humor and care. Richard always saw the best in people and has had a lasting impact on many around the country. Donate today in his memory.
