Tom and Lisa Short came to Eagle Ranch in September of 2013 from Canandaigua, New York where they raised their own two children, Christopher and Megan. Tom left the mortgage industry after 21 years, and Lisa was a nurse. They would say that, though parenting was their hardest job, it was also the one that they valued most. So as “empty-nesters” they began to research opportunities where they could serve the Lord together. Houseparenting seemed the perfect fit and Eagle Ranch the perfect place. The only thing that Tom and Lisa would change is to have their own family closer.
