Family Care Model


Since 1957, our programs have provided children with a nurturing family structure through our cottage homes, including a full-time house mom and dad, who work with each child to develop a strong work ethic, respect and a sense of responsibility. In addition to family-style living, we use a clearly defined model of care, making sure the children in our programs are given the same opportunities to attend school and participate in extracurricular activities as their peers. Ninety percent of the youth in our programs graduate from high school.

By utilizing a network of residential campuses throughout Florida, the Youth Ranches trained and devoted staff are well-equipped to nurture needy, neglected boys and girls and provide a warm sense of security, guidance and tenderness.
