Parents of autistic children will also place their kids there so they can have a safe environment. Thousands of young boys pass through the halls on a yearly basis. Recently, horrific allegations have abuse begun to surface. This includes physical, emotional, and sexual abuse.

These allegations came to light fairly recently following a large exposé in the Philadelphia Inquirer. A grand jury investigation is looking into the claims of misconduct.
