Residential Treatment Program with Community Service

Empathy, responsibility, and purpose through community outreach

Giving back to our community while helping our boys overcome their greatest challenges

Pegasus believes in the importance of giving back to the community that supports us. Through our residential treatment program, young men are required to actively participate in local community service projects to make a positive impact in Lockhart and surrounding areas. Doing so will give them a sense of purpose, promote empathy, and foster healthy relationships with the greater community, ultimately aiding in their rehabilitation and growth.
