This non profit has been called "Don Imus' Retirement home" but it serves the purpose of giving children with cancer, SIDS victim siblings a true working ranch experience. Doctors and life coasches are on hand to make sure the kids are staying with their medication regimens. It should however look more like a ranch and not something featured in "architecture monthly". The little ranchers farm fresh vegetables, learn to rope, and ride horses. The Imus family is very involved with the kids and take only a small salary if any. Those who went to the I-Ranch, are positively changed and some even return again and again. The child limit is small, as the Imus family makes sure that each child is involved and not being cared for Assembly Line style. I have been a supporter of the I-Ranch from day one, and I see it as a good use of my donations.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
Friendly and personable...except Mrs. Imus.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
Do more with more kids.
