Cass County Electric Cooperative granted $5,000 to Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch to underwrite a portion of the purchase of a delivery truck to be used by Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch Thrift Stores across the state.
All proceeds from Ranch Thrift Stores support the residential psychiatric and educational services the Ranch provides to children at three residential treatment facilities across the state. More and more children need the services provided by the Ranch, in part due to an increasing prevalence of parental mental illness and substance abuse.
The costs of psychiatric treatment not covered by Medicaid or private insurance companies are underwritten by the Thrift Stores, as are the specialized education services not covered by state education dollars. Thanks to ongoing thrift store income, the Ranch can continue to provide the intensive wraparound programming necessary to provide hope and healing for our troubled, complicated, and amazing kids.
Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch is a Christian residential treatment and education center for children and their families. We help the most troubled, complicated, and amazing kids by providing best-in-class psychiatric therapy and trauma-informed care, where we look kids in the eye, walk with them, and help them become their best selves. In addition to Residential Treatment Facilities in Fargo, Bismarck, and Minot, the Ranch provides Outpatient Psychiatric and Psychological Services, and Spiritual Life Programs. Our on-campus school, Dakota Memorial School (DMS), provides a personalized education for kids who have psychiatric, behavioral, and trauma issues.
