As we transition from the warmth of summer to the fresh beginnings of fall, it’s astonishing to realize that we’re already a few weeks into the new school year. The sense of optimism in the air is palpable, and it’s due in no small part to the boundless generosity and unwavering support of our extended Ranch family.

We want to extend our profound gratitude to the wonderful donors who went above and beyond to ensure our kids started the school year right, fitted in new school attire. Their enthusiasm and readiness for learning have been greatly enhanced by the confidence of wearing something new and fitting in with their peers.

Special commendations are due to our dedicated Case Manager team. Their relentless efforts have ensured that all meetings were carried out smoothly and every child’s enrollment was handled meticulously. It’s no small feat, and their diligence deserves every bit of appreciation we can muster.

Reflecting upon the summer that’s just passed, the outpouring of support for the Ranch has been nothing short of extraordinary. Our direct care staff, with the aid of our supporters, crafted a summer experience replete with activities and trips, ensuring that our kids had not just an enjoyable but a transformative summer. Churches and donors who adopted our summer projects, thank you for your investment in our mission. We’ve been buzzing with activity, working tirelessly to bring those projects to life.

Each child at the Ranch has a unique and profound story—stories colored with the shadows of loss, abuse, abandonment, and exploitation. But here, at the Ranch, we strive to pen a different chapter for them – one of rescue, healing, and restoration. Your contributions make this transformation possible. Each child’s progress, emotionally and behaviorally, stands as a testament to our collective endeavor and the impact of your support.

Looking ahead, the calendar is filling with events designed to continue our mission and foster community engagement. Highlighting our roster is the much-anticipated Fall Festival on October 27 and Christmas Celebration on December 7. We invite each one of you to join us and support this festive community activity. To keep abreast of all our happenings and find more avenues to contribute, please visit our website and follow us on our social media platforms.

In closing, from the deepest recesses of our hearts, thank you for believing in our vision and mission. Together, we are creating a legacy of hope, love, and restoration.
