Eagle Ranch School
- Eagle Ranch is a Christian-based children home for up to 54 boys and girls between the ages of 8 and 18.
- The Ranch is a multi-faceted center – a safe haven, a home, a school and a counseling center – where children live for a season of their lives while their families learn to put their lives back together again.
- Our children come from a variety of troubled backgrounds and home situations, and each has unique needs and issues.
- All are in some stage of crisis, and most are behind in school.
- Our team of houseparents, counselors and teachers collaborates to help the boys and girls address these issues.
- During the entire process, we also work with the children's families toward restoration.
- As our children and their families identify and change negative behaviors, they are able to overcome past failures and embrace a hopeful future.
- The children and teens who come to live at our Eagle Ranch childrens home typically are referred by a wide range of public and private sources – a school counselor or teacher; a juvenile court judge; a church staff member; a mental health professional; a state official with Georgia's Division of Family and Children Services (DFCS); or often a parent or concerned family friend.
