Extended families play a vital role in the lives of our children who may not have a family outside of Soaring Wings Ranch. These are couples and families in the surrounding communities who have shown a special interest in the ranch and in our children. They act as “aunt and uncle” for our children and keep them in their homes one weekend every month and a few days over the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.
Extended families also serve as mentors for the children, giving them someone away from the ranch whom they can admire and with whom they can develop a relationship. There is a thorough interviewing and screening process for all extended families in order to ensure the child’s safety.
For more information on extended families or to apply to be an extended
family, e-mail us or call (501) 849-2253.
