THE RANCH HOUSE
FREEING MOTHERS TO BE MOTHERS
No mother should have to choose between her child and her freedom.
According to the National Trafficking Sheltered Alliance’s “National Practices Survey Report of 2017,” the #1 reason among participating agencies for a woman to be declined from their program was that she had children in her custody. This accounted for 61.7% of the surveyed declines.
The Ranch House is one of very few homes in the United States equipped to take in both mothers and their children, helping fill a much-needed service gap and end cycles of abuse and exploitation for generations to come.
Here, she and her kiddos receive healing, education and life skills in a safe environment.
"When I got pregnant, I didn't know what to do and I didn't want to believe it. I felt so lost and alone. When I found out I got accepted here, I felt so relieved. When there was no hope, they gave me hope. I feel important for the first time in years!"
