Dr. Ken Huey from Calo Teens Joins The HOPE Group as Executive Director
The HOPE Group is thrilled to announce that Dr. Ken Huey has joined its operations as its new Executive Director. The HOPE Group operates three programs–Havenwood Academy, Zion Hills Academy, and, coming soon, Eagle’s Rest Ranch. All of the treatment programs serve adopted adolescent girls with trauma and attachment-related issues. Ken, who has been semi-retired for a few years, has decided to go back to full-time work by bringing his expertise to the HOPE Group.
Dr. Huey received his Ph.D. in Marriage and Family Therapy from Purdue University in 2002. After graduation, Ken began working in residential treatment as a therapist and quickly became the Business Development Director and the Clinical Director in large respected programs. In November of 2006, Ken founded Calo (Change Academy Lake of the Ozarks), a program for adopted youth with significant trauma histories and attachment-related issues. Calo, under Ken’s leadership, quickly grew and became the leading program in providing effective treatment to this population.
Blaine Hofeling, CEO of The HOPE Group, indicated that “Ken is a key component in helping us continue creating the perfect healing place for our population and in helping us expand our operations without losing sight of the fact that our whole mission is to serve the individual girl.” The HOPE Group would like to publicly thank Eric Allred for his dedication and leadership as the previous Executive Director and we look forward to his continued contributions to the program.
