Mission: The Ranch was organized in 1976 with a cottage (mobile home) that served as shelter to three young boys. The Ranch now consists of two campuses with four cottages for both boys and girls. During its history, the ranch has served as "home" to more than 300 children and touched the lives of thousands more through its statewide outreach programs. It is our intention to offer provide our children the birthright of every child -- the right to health care, educational opportunities, a safe home, and a loving environment with people who not only care for them, but about them.

I am a tutor,volunteer, and alternate houseparent for the Arkansas Sheriff's Youth Ranch. I just cannot say enough about the differences that this safe, nurturing environment has made in the lives of so many children. It has been wonderful to see students grow personally and academically under the care and guidance of wholesome and loving people who genuinely care.

This such a wonderful non-profit organization. Every Christmas the children send out cards or calendars (I particularly like those) with pictures of the children on each month. I have all the Christmas ornaments they've sent me since I began donating to the Ranch, which has been about 10 years. They help so many young children overcome so many obstacles that life has handed them. Keep up the good work and I look forward to my Christmas envelope arriving!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

They send me updates on the Ranch Children and their accomplishments. It always makes me feel good to know they achieve their goals.

Since 1997, the Charles A. Frueauff Foundation has supported the AR Sheriff's Youth Ranches. The Foundation deeply believes in the mission of the Ranch and it's staff. During these economic struggles, AR Sheriff's Youth Ranches have been strategic and responsible in making sound decisions to secure their future.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Mike Cumnock is an amazing leader and compassionate person. He cares deeply about the children of Arkansas and their welfare. He is thoughtful and obviously down to earth. I do not know the houseparents but cannot imagine the love and dedication it must take day in and day out to devote your life to that calling. Truly that is what they are doing because it is so much more than a job. Words cannot express my admiration for them. They are changing lives and in some cases, saving future generations from abuse and neglect.
