About Eagle Ranch

Eagle Ranch is one of Georgia’s largest residential programs for children in crisis, serving North Georgia and Metro Atlanta since 1985. Families turn to Eagle Ranch when life becomes a daily struggle with their child. We address behavioral, academic, emotional and social challenges that families have difficulty resolving on their own.

Children are provided a Christ-centered home, education and counseling in a program that involves the entire family, with the goal of the child returning home. We serve up to 24 girls and 42 boys, giving the structure, stability and time needed to work through a crisis situation. Our rural 310-acre campus in Flowery Branch provides a peaceful respite from the chaos that crisis can create. A variety of therapeutic and recreational activities give children the opportunity to work through their difficulties while enjoying childhood to the fullest.

We help navigate the complexities of today’s family relationships: from challenges facing traditional families, to those that arise for single parents or grandparents in the parental role. We help resolve conflicts, restore relationships and renew families for future generations.
