New Pressley Ridge Videos: “Listen” and “See”

We are excited to announce our two new videos: “Listen” and “See”. These videos feature some of the children in our schools. Have a look at them below!


Is anybody listening anymore?
There are certainly a lot of people talking.
Shouts. Murmurs. Digitally. Socially. 24/7.
There is “instant analysis”. Misinformed declarations.
Uneducated guesses. Labels. Names. Epithets.
Children are often accused of not listening.
But they do hear.
What are their minds filled with?
Have they been told they’re worthless? Damaged? Hopeless?
What do they believe about themselves?
We believe listening leads to learning the truth about a child.
Helps to unlock intelligence, competence, community and self-control.
Above all – listening leads to trust.
All children are worth listening to.
All Children. Always. Pressley Ridge.


A child sees everything.
They learn by what they experience.
Love. Compassion. Empathy. Trust.
Sadness. Grief. Loss.
Anger. Hostility. Abandonment.
Children have seen it all.
It can make them good. It can make them bad.
They can be helpful. They can be hurtful.
We don’t make excuses for children.
But we remember that they are children.
And what they’ve seen. We’ve seen.
And while some may see a child beyond hope.
We see a child we can help.
All Children. Always. Pressley Ridge.
