Uinta was my second chance. It is the place I feel is home and I will never stop being thankful for you and all you have done.

I love who I've become, I consider Uinta my home, always have and always will. It was like the family life that I never had. I didn’t know I was worth that much. I now realize that I am cared about. That some people actually want me and would never hurt me. I feel safe here. This is my home.


Uinta has given me the chance to start over in life and learn about myself, my family and how to make positive friends.


I will cherish my time spent at Uinta for the rest of my life.


The reason why I think Uinta will help me is it’s home life style home, it makes me comfortable.


As I was hiking through the trails, I kept telling myself “I can do this.” And positive self-talk was something that I didn’t do for myself at home. Uinta is the only place I’ve been my own self, without feeling ashamed.


Uinta has become my comfort zone and I honestly think it’s because of the way the program is set up. We have a house, real furniture, TV, beds, freedom, rec-activities, target skills, and therapy.

The lessons I learned at Uinta will continue to be of such immense influence in both my personal and professional life.


Uinta has inspired my heart and given me a safe home to live in. They always watch out for me and others and know what their needs are.

Uinta Parent Testimonials

All we though she was capable of achieving is now happening! This would not have been accomplished without the love and support she received at Uinta Academy.


We are ever grateful for Uinta Academy and its incredibly talented and caring staff. You saved Lacey’s life and there are no words to express our gratitude.

Cindy & Greg

The transformation, more like a rebirth, has given this sweet young lady a second change for happiness, success and life itself.


The journey wasn’t always an easy one, but today she is a happy and healthy young woman with a bright future ahead.


We visited two other programs in the area. They were respected and impressive programs, but neither of them had engaged owners that shared the passion that you bring to Uinta. Neither program felt like a home the way yours does.

Beth & Jim

We are so grateful to God for putting angels like you in Gabi’s life

Eddie & Michelle

Naomi loved putting on the Greek play and reported that she had a really great time doing the project. She was happy that people laughed and she loved her acting part.

I love the classical music appreciation. Tying in history, film, graphics and music together for the girls is incredible I have been trying to get my daughter to listen to classical music.

I feel the expressive arts are so important to a young person’s life. These girls will have missed a very meaningful part of living life to its fullest, if you hadn’t taken the time and effort to awaken an appreciation and a love of theater, classical music, history and art.


It is a very hard thing to turn your daughter over to anyone and especially hard for such an extended period of time. I know I did the right thing and Sarahcate really does have a second chance now at making good choices and having a very happy and successful life in whatever she wants to pursue in the future.


I want to personally thank you and your team for everything you did for Lexie. You saved her life and we’ll be forever in your debt. I had fewer worries when she was with you knowing she was well cared for. She now has a great foundation to continue to move forward and make positive change, all thanks to Uinta.

I can’t say enough good things about everyone. You have a great team. Not only are they very proficient, but you can also tell they are very caring and supportive of the young ladies. I marvel at everyone’s patience and professionalism when dealing with the girls and us parents!


Thank you for helping our daughter find herself and her way back to her family.

Chip & Kerry

You guys were far different than a ‘cure’. You are the voice inside my head that provides direction in a world without signs, roads or even a map. And because of you we have survived, more than survived.


Your work is a labor of love. We feel truly blessed to have found you and the Uinta team

We entrusted our daughter into Uinta’s hands. She was drowning. Little did we know that a family of “angels” was going to embrace her, teach her, and guide her to healthy rightful living. Uinta took our drowning daughter and taught her how to swim.

Uinta has graciously accepted our daughter and others unconditionally. They have shown them love and compassion when they need it most.
