You can help send our Ranchers back to school on August 21

The 2023-2024 school year will begin soon, and one thing is for sure–we have lots of excited boys and girls! For some of our Ranchers, the first day of school represents a fresh start. And for many of our newer Ranchers, this may be the very first opportunity they have to thrive in school.

One young man who has called the Ranch home for over 6 years received his diploma last year! He is currently living in our independent living home and will attend college this fall while he continues to work part time. We could not be more proud of him!

This is all thanks to support from friends like you.

You can help send our Ranchers back to school

August 21st is the first day of school for our Ranchers, and we need your help. Our houses are full this summer as we prepare for back to school, and we have lots of new students to buy school supplies for.

From kindergarteners to a college freshman, that is a lot of shopping lists, and their supply needs vary greatly. Your online gift is the very best way to make sure every Rancher’s need is covered, even beyond the classroom.

Your gift of $285 can provide everything one Rancher needs for a great school year–new school clothes, a new pair of shoes that fit, a fresh haircut, school supplies, and a new backpack.

Will you join us today by making a gift? Even a gift of just $30 can give two children a brand new backpack – something many of them have never had before and that they will carry with pride!

Your gift today, no matter the size, will not only help with needs like school supplies, but it is an investment in the futures of Arkansas children.
