Grounded in the promises set forth in Isaiah 40:30-31, Soaring Wings Ranch is a Christ-centered home for children, providing long-term foster care for those who have been abused, neglected, orphaned or are otherwise in need of a chance to soar. Soaring Wings Ranch strives to end the cycle of abuse and neglect by improving the lives of the abused and neglected through personal healing and child advocacy.
How We Do It
Researchers estimate that one third of abused children will grow up to abuse their own children. It’s one of countless sobering statistics that we at Soaring Wings Ranch find unacceptable and are committed to changing, making childhood safer for more children now and in the future.
Soaring Wings Ranch provides the children who join our family with every resource available to us. We delight in watching each child regain confidence, take pride in their appearance and unique skills, and recognize their value as God’s children.
From the moment they enter our campus, our children experience life as a member of a solid family anchored by compassionate and nurturing house parents. They receive new clothes, personal care items and school supplies on arrival. They’re surrounded by the quiet peace and tranquility of a rural ranch where bike riding, trail walking and fishing are a part of everyday life. They are encouraged to participate in spiritual growth opportunities and extracurricular activities specific to their own sets of skills and interests.
Weekly individual and family therapy addresses social, emotional and mental health needs while individualized education services ensure each child achieves the level of academic excellence he or she is capable of reaching. Most importantly, each child who lives at Soaring Wings Ranch has the opportunity to hear the good news about their Father and His sacrifice through Jesus Christ.
Though Soaring Wings Ranch provides long-term foster care to children who have been abused, neglected or orphaned, our mission reaches far beyond the need for a stable home environment. Our goal is to provide all the support each child needs to reach his or her potential and understand the love of God. We strive to give them the tools to navigate their lives successfully if and when the time comes for them to leave the ranch. While they are here, they learn, grow and heal.
Our hope is that from here, our children will share with others the love they experienced during their time at the ranch. From here, they can face a new life with a fresh perspective and the strength to take on new challenges. They will not fear what lies ahead. From here, they will soar.
“For those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” Isaiah 40:30-31
