The mission of Sunny Crest Youth Ranch is to provide a safe, loving environment that positively influences the social, emotional, physical and spiritual development of young men and their communities.
The Vision of Sunny Crest Youth Ranch is to build and maintain safe housing for boys and provide them with life skills to give them a second chance for a brighter future.
The Rancher's Experience
Each Sunny Crest home is set up in a “family like” setting. The house is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Up to ten boys can live in one home.
Sunny Crest is a working ranch and each youth is involve like d in responsibilities which involve the care and feeding of animals, gardening, recycling, or other day-to-day duties including maintaining the grounds and outside environment on the ranch. An important goal is for each youth to develop a sense of personal responsibility and pride within the well ordered environment of a safe setting. Experiencing this kind of stable home like setting creates a strong platform for our program and equips each the rancher to become a healthy and productive member of society. Youth ages 14 and older are also learning skills to live independently.
