Residential Child Care Program

The Ranch’s therapeutic residential program provides a home for abused, neglected, and abandoned children as young as age six.  Residents may remain in the program through post-secondary education and/or job training. Each child lives in a family-style cottage with house parents and up to seven other children.  Find out more in our Campus Life section.

The Ranch is located in Bethesda, Arkansas. It is equipped with lodging, computer and technology labs, on-site staff, recreational facilities, and livestock. All facilities are handicap accessible.


Speakers Bureau / Community Education / Child Abuse Awareness

Each day the Ranch visits communities throughout Arkansas to raise awareness of our efforts to help end child abuse and neglect in Arkansas. Ranch staffers are available to speak to audiences with open hearts and ears, from chambers of commerce to churches.  We also sponsor and assist community professionals and law enforcement with workshops to prevent and treat abuse and neglect.

If you’d like to invite us to speak, please contact us. Learn about upcoming events to support the Ranch in our News Section.
