Baldwin County Sheriff’s Boys Ranch

The Alabama Sheriffs Youth Ranches is a charitable, nonprofit corporation, sponsored by the Alabama Sheriffs’ Association and managed by a Board of Trustees.

The Ranch program is funded almost entirely by private donations from concerned individuals, churches, civic clubs, corporations and foundations.

The mission of the Ranches is to provide Christian, family-style residential homes for Alabama’s at-risk children and youth in an atmosphere where they may grow spiritually and physically into productive, responsible, and happy adults. The Ranches were founded in 1966 and have a long history of caring for our state’s young people in crises. The Ranch program was started to provide homes for children ages 6 to 18 from a variety of backgrounds who simply need a safe, loving place to call “home”.

The Ranches provide each child with caregivers and a structured living environment where the children receive love, stability and a caring place to call “home.” The Ranches are actual working Ranches and give our Ranchers an opportunity to learn and participate in livestock care, farm chores, and lawn care. Ranchers are taught responsibility and good citizenship by completing daily chores, participating in daily family devotionals, and pledging allegiance to the American flag. The children attend church and schools in their local communities and are encouraged to participate in extracurricular activities such as youth groups, sports, and clubs.
