Elk Hill Chapel

To respond with God's all-inclusive love, Elk Hill bridges faith and spirituality to strengthen the behavioral, emotional, and mental health for all. 

Our chapel has a multi-faith and non-denominational focus which offers a variety of activities for residents and staff to participate in. Our desire is for our youth and staff to reserve the right to self direct their faith journey. Elk Hill aims to be inclusive and accommodating to individuals of various religious backgrounds and beliefs. The chapel provides resources, support, and space for youth and staff to explore and practice their faith in a manner that aligns with their personal beliefs and values.

Love in Diversity 

We embrace grace, which involves showing kindness, forgiveness, process, and understanding both towards oneself and others.


We provide an inclusive love, that will promote understanding, unity and a sense of belonging. 


We value faith and spirituality as a source of comfort and resilience for all individuals on a personal journey of finding purpose, hope, compassion and connection.
