Here, I can let my intelligence reign free!

Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch is more than residential care for troubled children, it is more than a school, more than a chapel, and more than the highest level of psychiatric care and therapy. The Ranch provides so much more, because that is what a hurting child needs to heal and find success. We do everything we can, in the name of Christ, so these special people youngsters can be proud of themselves.

Sometimes, we don’t know hear how much we’ve helped a child until long after they’ve moved on. Other times, they tell us right away how the Ranch is helping them.

In a recent news story, one of our 8th graders said, “Here, I can let my intelligence reign free!”  Another student said he was so badly bullied at his last school that the thought of going would make him throw up. Now he is excited about going to school and is trying to get good grades.

We wanted to give you the chance to hear from these two kids firsthand. Watch the story to see the impact of your generosity and prayers!

I hope you enjoy the news story as much as I did!

God bless!
