Tutoring is available to our students through students from Virginia Commonwealth University and the University of Richmond.

We’ve combined the best of what McShin offers, from recovery coaching to lessons in cooking, cleaning, and other life skills, we ensure our students are prepared for their future.Our recovery curriculum adapts to the times and our staff is committed to keeping a safe and supportive environment.
