Collin's life was transformed because someone like you shopped at our Thrift Stores
People who knew Collin before his time at the Ranch said he was incorrigible and unteachable...a lost cause.
But with careful treatment and encouragement, Collin has proved himself able to overcome his past trauma.
A hurting boy in search of love and encouragement
When he arrived at the Ranch, Collin had been through the wringer. He needed full-time residential treatment. His treatment team stood by him to help him identify his strengths and regain his confidence. It wasn't long before he was succeeding in his treatment and impressing his teachers in school.
Collin kept focused. Within seven months, he was able to move back to a relative's home. He continuing to attend Dakota Memorial School, the on-campus school of Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch, where he earned better grades than he ever imagined possible.
