The options for boot camps for low-income families may include state-funded boot camps for children who are already in the juvenile justice system, private boot camps with payments and scholarships, or community mental-health programs that have financial assistance available. There are no federal government programs for low-income families.
Websites such as Boot Camp for Children can help locate a boot camp program. Also, Global Post has a list of resources to help low-income families find programs for troubled children. It is important to distinguish whether a child needs mental health resources, a substance-abuse program, or a resource that deals with behavioral issues to ensure the best outcome for the child.
