Cookson Hills seeks to partner with supporting churches and individuals to offer help, hope, and healing to children and families who find themselves caught in circumstances that threaten irreconcilable harm, government intervention, or loss of a child. We are licensed in the state of Oklahoma to provide residential services, counseling services, and state accredited K-12 education to resident children.

Family Style Living: Children are placed in a residence with house-parents who are surrogate parents to children during their placement. The family offers nurture, love, support, structure, discipline, and guidance as children learn healthy ways of relating in a functional Christian family.

Therapeutic Services: Professionally sound Christ centered counseling services are offered to every child in care and include cognitive/behavioral therapy, equine assisted learning, equine assisted psychotherapy, play therapy, psycho educational groups, therapy groups, family counseling and family training.

Educational Services: State accredited educational programs are available to meet the individual needs of children and include a strategic blend of computer assisted and instructor lead classes, credit recovery opportunities, GED program, competitive athletics, and 4-Him programs.
