276. Freedom Village
This facility in New York is based on a kind of so-called Christian religion Jesus would not approve of if anything in the Bible is correct.
Forcing teenagers to eat larger portions that they need , giving no real counseling, punishing them by making them walk around in a circle for 4 hours while holding a block of wood.
Add poor economy management, backruptcy deals etc. It makes it safe to say that it is no a fun place to be as a teenager.

It seems that former employees were not paid their salary, so the facility moved to another state. The article also mentions a form of bizarre punishment used against the children.
