Partnering with Families
While children may live at Eagle Ranch for a season of their lives, our goal is to reunite the child with their family.
Each of our boys’ homes and girls’ homes is designed for children who are a similar age and developmental level. Homes are run by a team that includes a married Houseparent Couple, Program Assistant and Licensed Counselor.
By modeling a healthy family, houseparents create a therapeutic environment where children are able to attain goals established when accepted at the Ranch. Meals are cooked in the home to create a family-type atmosphere. The Houseparents, Program Assistant and children participate in family activities such as house chores, devotions, play time, regular worship services, and weekend activities. Group time allows children to talk about how they are doing, build connection with others in the home, and work on relational skills.
Eagle Ranch doesn’t replace a child’s family – we partner with them. Children go home every other weekend, holidays and school vacations. This provides an opportunity for the family to practice what they are learning through the program. Families participate in counseling, parent groups and other activities to help them heal and gain skills to make life better. The average stay for a child at Eagle Ranch is two years.
Eagle Ranch is dedicated to modeling a Christ-centered family for the children entrusted to us.
