New Perspectives - Feb, 1996 Issue #38 

TEEN RESCUE
Phil Ludwig, Ex. Dir.
Corona, California
800-494-2200 

The purpose of Teen Rescue "is to bring healing to parents and their children through firm but loving intervention, education, and training." They claim to have assisted "nearly 4000 families since 1989 by locating missing and runaway children, providing special parent education, family intervention, and finding the right kind of help for families with teenagers in crisis." 

It includes the Julian Youth Academy, a "private Christian school that provides full-time supervision and instruction within defined high moral standards. We provide a professional and approved educational program, customized curriculum, coaching, intervention, parent training support groups and a high staff to student ratio. The staff encourages students in areas such as self-esteem, responsibility, motivation, self-reliance, accountability, and good decision making skills. We provide a Christian family environment that is loving yet firm, working with the child and parents to restore the family through mutual respect and understanding." 

Their mission is to provide help by: Locating educational programs and resources for the child and family that are within the financial means of the family; Locating and evaluating missing or runaway children; Safely transporting, placing and/or relocating a child into a caring but structured setting; Intervening between the child and family to restore unity and direction; Educating the child's parents through an individualized or group Parent Training Course; and Acting as a liaison between parents, children, other family members, law enforcement agencies, Child Protective Services and school authorities.
