Our campus provides residential care for children without charge, without accepting government funds, and without regard to religious affiliation. Our ministry is dependent on charitable contributions from churches and individuals. Your donations are vital to our ongoing ministry and we appreciate your faithful support. You are making a difference in these children's lives!

Boys Ranch Town Program Needs
In the horse program, boys learn to accept responsibility by working with horses which are dependent on them for care. Taking care of the horses includes feeding, brushing, bathing, and nurturing them. Through these actions, boys develop patience and caring, compassionate attitudes towards not only the horses, but for people as well. Through the consistent routine of these programs and the lessons learned in working with the animals, the boys develop good habits that will benefit them at home, school, and work.
Transitional Living Program Needs
The Transitional Living Program is a program offered to residents at Boys Ranch Town. The goal of the program is to assist boys as they transition from childhood to adulthood by teaching life skills and encouraging them as they become men of God. The Transitional Living Program at Boys Ranch Town offers a program and facilities that will allow residents to learn life skills and practice independent living skills.
Currently we are in need of the following items for transitional living program at BRT:
- Small refrigerators
- Basic kitchen items
- Bedroom items
Serviceable vehicles for our older students.
Instead of trading in that older vehicle, you can donate that vehicle to the campus and we in turn give that vehicle to one of our eligible students. (Vehicles must be able to be driven to the campus, be valued less than $5,000 and have clear and unencumbered titles.)
Transportation Needs at Boys Ranch Town
One of the greatest areas of need in our ministry is keeping our vehicles running and in good condition.
Boys Ranch Town uses eleven vehicles to provide transportation for our boys and staff members, to transport animals and for ranch work such as hauling hay and feed, and for meeting daily operational needs.
After researching the best options to meet our transportation needs, we should replace two vehicles each year, at least one cottage van and a vehicle for office use.
In order to provide the safest vehicles for our boys and staff, it costs approximately $20,000 per year for oil changes, filters, hoses, battery replacements, tires, and other general maintenance. With the rising gas prices, it costs us approximately $100.00 per fill up for our cottage vans and our program trucks.
The OBHC gift registry project has been set up to help you help us by providing lists of needed items for our campuses, pregnancy centers, and children in care.
During November and early December we also list some of our residents' Christmas "wish list" items on the Gift Registry. You can easily filter out the Christmas items and see these items exclusively.

We are very grateful to those who intercede for our ministry. We witness God's miracles on a regular basis whether it's in the life of a child or an event in the ministry.
We know God is on our side as long as we submit to His will, and we are protected as long as we remain in the shadow of His wings.
Please pray for the following:
- Wisdom and knowledge for our houseparents in working with the children of OBHC.
- For each resident in our care to discover God's overwhelming love for them and to develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
- The safety of our boys and staff members.
- For wisdom, strength, health and wellness of our staff members as they are constantly caring for our residents.
- God's provision for all physical, spiritual, and emotional needs to keep our ministry going strong.
