I think Ranch Good Days has a agenda of good intentions, however I believe that if this program really was a sustainable program, the development and goals would have been met years ago. The reality of this ranch is the founder is unable to pull it all together, and for the last several years has relied on donations from the public, and a foster care license to supplement the donations. The ranch has been on the move for the last several years, from Colorado and now in Texas, never able to even begin to offer what it's mission statement is.

Be more organized, develop a profitable marketing strategy, look for more resourceful ways to advertise and make the correct connections to make this ranch a profitable and valuable asset for the girls that are in need.

There are several similar types of ranches operating to serve teenage boys in a number of states. To the best of my knowledge (and I sincerely wish to be corrected should anyone know otherwise) RGD is UNIQUE, as it is the only horse ranch serving the needs of at risk teenage girls.
Over the
years I have worked with just over 35 girls. Typically, the girls have been traumatized: Some recently, some in the distant past and some have simply been traumatized over extended periods of time. It seems nothing is left to the imagination concerning the trauma suffered by some of these girls. If you will, try to imagine a 15 year old without ANY dependable support system. A girl who has made a conscious decision NO ONE can be trusted and proceeds to do whatever is necessary to survive in the fringes of society. What hope for the future do these kids have? Very little without RGD.

I have lived and cared for 35 teen girls over the last seven years. This was a life changing experience and I understand, in depth, the walk these girls were faced with upon arriving and departing from our RGD home. I am happy to be able to follow a child as she progresses to age 18 and transitions to college or career.

I would operate 100% privately and I see our organization seeking that possibility as a reality. Government does not make a good custodial parent and keeps people from being able to help children.
