E-Nini-Hassee was founded in 1969 by Jack and Ruth Eckerd as the first outdoor therapeutic program for troubled girls in the southeast.
At E-Nini-Hassee, the Eckerds created a positive, strength-based environment for girls ages 12-18 to experience nurturing guidance. Students are able to see adults role modeling appropriate behaviors, learn in an educational setting with passionate teachers and participate in therapeutic outdoor adventures during their time at the school. E-Nini-Hassee helps girls fully realize the potential that already exists within them.
"Your program literally saved my daughter’s life, and I will be eternally grateful to the entire staff and counselors there."
