A Letter from the CEO

Welcome to Open Sky


Aaron FernandesThank you for taking the time to learn more about Open Sky.  We know that making a decision to send a son or daughter out of the home for help requires a tremendous leap of faith. This decision is a matter we will never take for granted. Open Sky is an employee-owned business and everyone on our team has a strong investment to the services we provide as though our own children were the participants. Knowing that your child is in our care and dependent upon us for growing and learning during this challenging time inspires each of us to provide you and your family with the highest quality treatment experience available. The safety and well being of each and every student placed in our care is our greatest responsibility and deserving of the highest regard and attention. As well, we strive each and every day to deliver a profound and meaningful experience for our students and their families and we truly believe that what we do here works and will make a lasting impact on many lives for years and years to come. We honor the opportunity to serve each and every family, each and every day.

In 2006, the Open Sky leadership team came together after several years working in wilderness therapy because we shared a bold vision of creating an innovative, holistic wilderness therapy program with personalized therapeutic care. Open Sky, to date, has successfully served hundreds of adolescents and young adults and their families. We are the first such program to integrate the best of contemporary clinical modalities, awareness practices, and wilderness therapy. We believe that this approach leads our students on a healing journey to wholeness. As well, our research, conducted on each and every student enrolled at Open Sky has proven this to be true.

We also set out to design a program that enhances the health of not only our clients, but also our employees as well. We believe that the health of the organization must be among the highest priorities in order to serve each and every student and family member with the best that we have to offer. With highly competitive wages, generous vacation pay, exceptional health benefits, and a commitment to well-being, we have maintained positions at each and every level of the company beyond industry averages.

Thanks for considering Open Sky and please do not hesitate to call to talk with us at anytime. We look forward to assisting you in any way we can.
