Chestnut Mountain, Ga. (May 2012) – Eagle Ranch, a Christian home for children in crisis, graduated the largest class in its 27-year history with 26 boys and girls completing the program this spring.
Since opening its doors in 1985, Eagle Ranch has helped more than a thousand children work through difficulties in all aspects of their lives – from family and social relationships to academic performance and more.
The graduating children came from Hall, Gwinnett, DeKalb, Fulton, Putnam, Forsyth, Habersham, Barrow, Walton and Jackson counties.
“This is an exciting year. We are extremely proud of the young men and women for successfully completing the program,” Staub said. “Each graduate represents a family that has been restored, and we are excited to celebrate each child’s accomplishments as well as recognize the hard work put in by their family members.”
Eagle Ranch is home to nearly 70 boys and girls ages 8-16 from a 20-county region in North Georgia. The integrated program includes homelife, counseling and education. While children may live at Eagle Ranch from elementary through high school, the program is structured to motivate them toward returning home as soon as possible. Parents or legal guardians play an important role in the Eagle Ranch program.
