Glenhaven Youth Ranch provides hope and healing in a Christ-centered home for young men and women in need. We partner with families and others, equipping them with tools to help hurting children overcome the disappointments of their past.
We are licensed by the Department of Human Services to provide direct, long-term residential care for up to 30 youths. Our program consists of four Pillars that work
together to wholly nurture our teens:
HOME LIFE provides love and stability in a positive, structured, and supportive family home.
EDUCATION offers comprehensive, on-site academic advancement and vocational training.
WELLNESS provides opportunities for healing the wounds of their past and developing effective problem-solving skills for their future.
SPIRITUAL LIFE offers mentoring relationships where faith and love is exemplified.
Rather than addressing surface issues with temporary solutions, our professional team of staff and volunteers take a relational approach to meet each child’s unique needs. On average, a resident graduates after two years by reintegrating into a healthy family or transitioning into a hopeful adult life.
Admission to Glenhaven Youth Ranch is handled individually. Applicants must complete the Phase One and Phase Two Applications and submit all requested information before considerations of acceptance will occur. Phase Three of the application process is an interview by the intake team with the applicant and the parents or guardians.
