TAPS Family Services (www.taps14.org) was begun as a parent support group in Oceanside, CA in 1994 by Tony and Maryann Pallotto, and became a non-profit 501(c)3 corporation in August 1996.
TAPS Family Services began out of extreme hardship. Tony and Maryann are parents of three sons, two of whom were addicted to drugs and alcohol. It was through these hardships that Tony and Maryann dedicated their lives to this work. TAPS knows the pain of dealing with troubled and out-of-control teens. Their son, Mark, died from a heroin overdose. TAPS stands ready to serve all families of troubled and out-of-control loved ones.
Teen Rescue (www.teenrescue.com) was founded as a nonprofit in 1989 and is dedicated to helping families and their teenagers. In addition to having a private boarding school, Teen Rescued opened our own fully accredited, private Christian residential. River View Christian Academy is located in Northern California and is designed for struggling teenagers in need of full-time supervision and redirection. We are the only Christian boarding school in California dedicated to working with teenagers who are having behavioral issues.
We restore teens to a healthy outlook on life through loving redirection by teaching life skills and building character through integrity, boundaries, and self control. Part of the RVCA program includes a non-traditional wilderness program as an optional incentive for high level students that is focused on developing leadership skills.
