Adolescent young men in urban and rural America face dismal prospects. Poverty, crime, drugs, and above all- disrupted families pose nearly insurmountable obstacles to success. All too often these young Americans enter the juvenile justice or social service systems. Absent interventions to stabilize their lives and restore their sense of self, these young men may enter a cycle of frustration, anger, and further alienation from society. Oak Hill House exists to change that.
