In 1957, a small group of Florida Sheriffs saw the need for a residential care facility for troubled boys. With a little bit of cash and a big dream, they pooled their wisdom and efforts and watched their dream become a reality. Within a short period of time, they were helping many young boys turn their lives around to become productive and responsible adults.

Today the Boys Ranch has the capacity to accommodate 82 boys ages 8-18. The boys participate in many different activities such as swimming, baseball, volleyball, canoeing and arts and crafts. In addition, each boy attends school, either on campus or in the local public school system in the Live Oak community. Each boy also participates in a structured work program.

Thanks to the generosity of individuals and groups around the state of Florida and other states, the Sheriffs' original dream has become a reality for many youth and their families. As a result of their caring gifts, the Boys Ranch is now one of four Youth Ranches residential child care facilities and two camping programs.
