Congrats to our 2019 Graduates!

Congratulations to our 2019 Graduates! We were filled with pride to watch these two young men walk across the stage last Friday evening to accept their high school diploma.

The odds may have been stacked against them, but through a combination of their resilience and determination along with the love and opportunities they’ve received from their houseparents and staff at the Arkansas Sheriffs’ Youth Ranch, they have reached this important milestone in their lives.

We are incredibly grateful to every Ranch supporter who has provided for these young men over the years. Because of your support, they have been Ranch Raised!

At the Ranch, we raise a child’s vision for what a loving family looks like. We raise their expectations of themselves for how well they can do in school. We raise their hopes for their own future by helping them set and accomplish their goals. We raise them to love as they’ve been loved and pass along those lessons to the next generation.

Since 1976, we’ve raised boys and girls in stable and loving homes where they get to be a kid while growing into responsible young men and women. Thanks to consistent support from our friends and community partners, the Arkansas Sheriffs’ Youth Ranches has helped raise more than 2,100 children!

But we can’t do it without friends like you. Join us today in celebrating our Seniors by making a gift in honor or in memory of someone who’s made a difference in your life. With your one-time or monthly gift to the Arkansas Sheriffs’ Youth Ranch you are helping Raise a Rancher!


With your support, the Ranch can continue to raise children who come from homes torn apart by abuse and neglect. Your gift to the Ranch, no matter how small, can make a big difference in the life of a child.

You may have heard the saying “it takes a village” to raise a child. That statement could not be more true for us at the Ranch. It takes all of us working together to raise these children. But the lives that are changed here are more than worth the effort!

Join us as we raise a new generation of Ranchers! It’s quick and easy to make a one-time gift or set up an automatic monthly contribution. Click here or text the word ranch to 41444 to make a gift today!

A monthly contribution of just $25 can provide a lot of “firsts” for our kids!

•  A cap and gown for a family’s first high school graduate
•  The first birthday party they’ve ever had
•  The first pair of new shoes that aren’t “hand-me-downs”
•  The first ever monthly allowance that will help teach responsibility
•  Feed for the first animal a child has ever taken care of

You can help a child celebrate a lot of “firsts” at the Ranch. Click here to make a one-time or monthly gift.
