Creating a Safe Space for All

Chenoa Manor’s primary mission is two-fold:

  1. To serve our animal residents
  2. To serve the youth who seek to be here.

That mission embodies a sense of unity and respect among the youth, the animals, and the surrounding environment. Including the trees, plants, bodies of water and the land itself.

The importance of the youth component is to instill a sense of compassion and respect toward other individuals. This is achieved through positive interaction with animals and the environment.

If a young person can develop a relationship with an animal resident based upon mutual trust, patience, and understanding, then those same qualities may be carried over to the teen’s relationships with other individuals.
