“Nancy’s deep knowledge and expertise will be a great asset to the Ranch and we are pleased to have her continue our mission of creating safe, healthy and permanent homes for the children of Arkansas,” said Doc Holladay, president of the Ranch board of directors. “On behalf of the board, I welcome Nancy to the Ranch and have every confidence in her leadership abilities.”

“I am excited and honored to join the Arkansas Sheriffs’ Youth Ranches as Chief Executive Officer,” said Ms. Weaver. “Throughout my professional career and volunteerism, I have seen the pain that many Arkansas youth have experienced. Many children and teens, who are referred for mental health services, involved in juvenile courts, or placed in DHS custody, find themselves in those situations through no true fault of their own but because of repeated failures of their family systems. I join you in the effort to alleviate the pain these children and teens experience by providing them with loving, supportive, safe, and nurturing homes.”
