New Girls Cottage Opens at Ranch
04/21/2017

At the Arkansas Sheriffs’ Youth Ranches, we have seen a growing need for sibling groups, especially sibling groups that include younger children, who need a place to call home.

We recently wrote about the youngest children we have taken to date. An under two year old, her three year old sister, and her brother, who is 10. This sibling group is just one of many reasons we decided to open a new cottage for girls at the Ranch this year.

Here’s a story from KAIT Region 8 News about the new cottage and this immediate need.

We have repurposed an older home on our campus and completely remodeled it to be a home for up to eight new girls. This doubles the Ranches’ capacity for girls, and will allow us to keep even more sibling groups together rather than moving them to separate foster homes.

The house is now ready, and we already have girls moving in. But we need additional support for this new home to fund things like utilities, groceries, hygiene products, and salary for a full-time housemother.
