Abuse Alleged at the Family Foundation School Near Hancock

Bob Joseph/WNBF News

The former Family Foundation boarding school for troubled young people south of Hancock is closing.

The school had very strict rules and claimed a large success rate in rehabilitating teens that had serious social, criminal, addiction and other problems.

The facility, which was only funded through tuition and operated year round, tasked students with jobs from cleaning, construction, maintaining gardens and cooking in addition to school work, sports teams and music and arts programs.

Past directors said there were tight regulations as to what outside influences the students were allowed to avoid triggers to past bad behaviors and there were padded time-out rooms in some of the buildings that some students even put themselves into when they started to act out.

The school had been renamed the Allynwood Academy and has been the focus of several claims of abuse.
