858. Wolf Creek Academy

Wolf Creek Academy or Harbor Oaks Boarding School is located in North Carolina.

In 2010 the facility was involved in a lawsuit. It is not clear where the therapists are trained but to see “demons” following the clients to be treated seem kind of strange. On former detainee at the facility wrote in a comment to a blog:

I was in Harbor Oaks for 8 months

and I can defenitly beleive alot of this stuff

I got better but not from the help of anyone else it was just a choice I made, no counseling session did anything for me, actually one time my counselor said that she could see “demons” following me!!!!!! Everytime a student would tell their parents something bad about the school,l ike how they were touched wrong by the staff, or the expired food, when they would calll the office they would just be lied to then the students would get into trouble. If i had enouph patience to sit here and say everything wrong this school has done to its students i would be here alll day

Another former student wrote:

I went there two years ago and it ruined my life, it got me to start drugs, drinking, cutting, ect. at age 13. I ending up trying to commit sucide a few months later due to the damage it has done to me. I was tramized, i was scared to go to the bathroom and leave my bed. I only got to see my theripist if i asked to. I was put on sucide watch for 2 weeks and they didnt even watch me, let me do the same thing as the other girls. it was complete and utter bullshit. they lied about everything and told my parents we got to use the internet and contact friends, lies, we could talk to parents maybe 15 mins a week on a supervised phone call. The staff could end the phone call or deyn you your phone call if they wanted to, one of the staff while i was there got fired for watching some of the girls in thier underwear. Also the food was digustion. It was always expired, and begin a vegaterian, i was forced to skip meals sometimes because i refused to eat the meat. Id write a hell of a lot more if i had the time though. But parents, please DONT send your child here.

Over all it does not sound like a fun place to be as a teenager.

838. The Elsinore family

An ordinary family living in Elsinore became the center of some media coverage around 2012 when it was discovered that they had fostered a child in secret. The social services had for long time given this family special focus due to their religious and political activities. While they were supported by but the local priest, local politician Ib Kirkegaard and longtime member of the parliament and foreign minister for Denmark Villy Søvndal supported the family but with no luck. No even those two could prevent that the family lost their children who were moved to various group homes where the employees worked to alienate the children against their parents.

After the discovery of the hidden child the authorities continued to harass the family because there according to various rumors should be even yet another hidden child.

To this day (2021) no additional child has been found.

It could not be fun to be a child targeted by the social services in Denmark just because your family structure might be slightly different than most.

802. Bellevue Baptist Church

Bellevue Baptist Church is a large church in the Memphis area. When so many people attend a church among them young people even children, the church have a special responsibility to monitor their employees and report incidents to the police when needed.

It seems that Bellevue Baptist Church failed this responsibility. An employee were able to engage in sexual relationship with a underaged girl. A now former pastor showed some interesting photos of his wife special situations.

It cannot be fun lot let your children go to a so-called safe place and then find them as potential victims. It cannot be fun for the children either.

763. Unnamed residential treatment facility in Romania

Unnamed residential treatment facility in Romania located in the village of Viseu de Sus was raided by the police and several of the adults were detained.

The managers had set up the program in connection with local officials who informed them of inspections in advance so they could drug the teenagers so they were sedated and not able to make any complaints to the inspectors. The teenagers were Germans imprisoned outside their own country with approval from German authorities because such a facility could be run cheaper with low-paid Romanian labor rather than running it in Germany where the salary levels are higher.

It could not be fun to be detained abroad under such conditions.

705. Vision Quest, Greene Township, Franklin County

Girls continued to run away from this facility. In 2018 3 girls ran way – one had run before.

Vision Quest has been in operation for many years. Over the years several teenagers have died in their custody.

It is clear that the girls felt unsafe and decided to leave. Based on the history of the organisation it seems justified. It cannot be fun to be there as a teenager.

703. Box Hill and Bayswater boys’ homes

The Box Hill and Bayswater boys’ homes was run by the Salvation Army. The government which should have secured oversight did not care and as result some of the boys were abused.

Beside the government having having neglected their duty, also the Salvation Army failed as an organization, denying that they had the to look after the volunteers they allowed near the children.

It could not have been fun to be there as a child.

684. Gateway to Independence

Gateway to Independence located in Nashville, Tennessee were supposed to be a good place for teenagers who needed extra structure, their families could not provide.

Unfornately that demanded enough employees to provide this structure and they must have been understaffed as the facility is now known for riots, vandalism and violence. A federal judge has put a stop to transferring youth to the facility. Some teenagers have tried to commit suicide in order to leave.

Maybe it has always been so. The facility suffered the same issues when it was run under the name of Woodlands Hills Development Center.

I cannot not be fun to be there as a teenager.

682. Open Door Baptist Church

The Open Door Baptist Church is not a good place to be as a minor. Not only there is the risk of sexual abuse as it too sadly is very common in religious communities. At this church abuse was not reported when it was discovered. The police arrested the leader of the church due to his failure to report the abuse.

It could not have been fun to be a child without protection of responsible adults at this church.

656. Danish Teenage actress or actor in 1970’s

Young Danes dreaming of a life in the movie entertainment business were abused by the directors Ernst Johansen and Lasse Nielsen. Ernst Johansen had a taste for young girls and Lasse Nielsen a taste for young boys.

They made a number of youth movies like “Du er ikke alene”, “Måske ku’ vi” and “La’ os være”. They were the hottest partnership in the Danish movie industry back then. Young talents wanted to be part of the movies and the ambitions was abuse by the directors. One of the girls comitted suicide.

It could not have been fun being a teenager finding out that the agenda never was to make the movies, but rather using the movies to get easy and quick sex.
