MDU Resources Foundation awarded $4,000 to Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch to purchase a commercial gas stove for the Nutrition Center on its Bismarck campus. The purchase is just one part of an overall transformation of the Nutrition Center.
Children at the Ranch often come from unstable homes, so one of the first goals is to meet their basic needs: food, shelter, safety, etc. Children cannot heal if their needs are not met at this basic level.
The nutrition center is used daily by many people including staff, students at Dakota Memorial School (the on-campus school of Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch), and children in treatment at Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch.
Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch is a Christ-centered residential treatment and educational center for children. Our dedicated employees 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. Our on-campus school, Dakota Memorial School (DMS), provides a personalized education for kids who have psychiatric, behavioral, and trauma issues.
