For these boys and girls, graduation doesn’t just mark academic achievement, but the accomplishment of hard-earned goals that extend well beyond the classroom into every facet of their young lives. We’re proud of their perseverance and accomplishments and pray for continued success as they return home. The summer months are much more relaxed at Eagle Ranch, with no early morning rush for school, homework, after school extracurricular activities all jammed into an 8-hour day. However, it is an exciting time as we welcome new boys and girls to our program. And this year in particular, we look forward to what the future holds as we will soon be able to provide a home for almost 70 children with the completion of our two new girls’ homes. Thank you so much for your faithful giving here that helps make Eagle Ranch a place of success for our boys and girls. God’s blessings to you and your family. Sincerely,

EAGLE RANCH FOUNDATION BOARD OF TRUSTEES

Our Mission
Eagle Ranch provides a Christ-centered home for boys and girls in crisis and in need of hope and healing. Partnering with their families, we pursue restoration and reunification. We seek to influence and equip others who share a similar calling to impact children, families, and future generations.

Success Defined
A Look at Eagle Ranch Graduation
Graduation at Eagle Ranch is less about endings, and more about new beginnings. It’s less about the work the student has done, and more about the work God has done. Rather than a child preparing to leave home, an Eagle Ranch graduate is ready to return home.
Each May, families celebrate the completion of their season at Eagle Ranch. Success means something different for each child, and graduation isn’t only marked by academic achievement. Children and their families must restore respect, trust and consistency. Graduation ceremonies are held for families, hosted by the child’s Eagle Ranch houseparents and attended by the families of all the children in the home. Families are surrounded by their circle of support - teachers, counselors and assistant counselors - who come to share memories of their journey and celebrate the child’s future. Upon graduation, a child returns to their family permanently and uses the lessons learned during their time at Eagle Ranch. For some children, they will continue with school, many entering local high schools. The Ranch continues to be a resource for the family with aftercare available at any time after program completion. In addition to celebrating the restoration of families and the accomplishments of graduates, the Eagle Ranch School marks the educational growth and achievements of its students through Honors Day. During this time, students’ academic milestones, improvements and contributions are honored. For many students, Honors Day is a significant event as it represents renewed confidence and substantial academic improvement.

“Have you ever wished that God would do a miracle? One miracle that God did changed my life. When I was in Romania in an orphanage, I always wanted a family, because I did not have one.”

A Miracle Journey
By Nick, 2009 Eagle Ranch Graduate “I got to the United States and faced some of the worst challenges in my life. I didn’t know how to speak English. I had a hard time doing my work at school. I was giving my teachers a hard time, and I was not making friends very well. This happened from 2nd through 8th grade. While I was in 8th grade, my mom sent me to Eagle Ranch, which changed my life. The first year in Eagle Ranch was hard. I was disrespectful to the teachers, to my peers and houseparents. However, I have changed a lot since I came to Eagle Ranch. I’ve learned how to care about people and not just myself. I’ve learned how to deal with hard situations. I’ve learned how to make friends, which was one of my main things that I have struggled with all my life. I have learned how to listen to others for what they have to say. God has made me a new person. Eagle Ranch has helped me have a good relationship with my family, teachers, my friends and peers. I am glad that I came to Eagle Ranch because it has made a huge difference in my life. I hope that God will continue to help me.”

Future plans: To become a musician or police officer. About the Ranch: Before I came to the Ranch, I wouldn’t even go to school. I would refuse to go, and now I like it.

Brooke, The Glory Home
Length of stay at Eagle Ranch: 2 ½ years. Favorite activities: Snowbird retreat and the Lapdog team-building program. Favorite memory: Road Atlanta dirt bike field trip. What did you learn? To respect myself and others. What will you miss? All the staff, the classrooms and the structure in the house. Future plans: College, theatre and auto racing. Who influenced you most? Another student I had to learn to deal with.

Drake, The Peace Home
Length of stay at Eagle Ranch: 3 years. Favorite activities: Mountain biking, baseball, soccer. What did you learn? To listen to both sides of a story instead of making things one-sided. Evaluating the other side of a story and figuring out what to do from there. Not having things just revolve around me. What will you miss? Having seven brothers around. Future plans: College– to become a personal fitness trainer or a physical therapist for professional athletes. Who influenced you most? Assistant counselors, Greg and Aaron– they are like brothers. How has your faith changed? I used to not think about it at all, but now I think about it more. I get into the Bible instead of not even wanting to look into it. I do Bible studies every morning at the school– we just get in the hall, read a Bible verse and pray about the day.

How has your faith changed? I didn’t believe God was real. It’s changed a lot just seeing people here, and doing the devotions helped a lot. I got saved at my church during my time here. I think it’s awesome that even when I mess up I know God’s going to be there, cheering me on, telling me I can do it.

Future plans: Finish my senior year in high school, then study diesel mechanics at a technical school. Who influenced you most? My assistant counselor, Matthew. He was like a big brother that I never had. It was great to have someone to talk to. How has your faith changed? If you listen to the Lord, He’ll give you what you need. It may be not exactly what you want, but what He thinks is right for you. About Eagle Ranch: It’s not just somewhere that you drop off your kid and think they’re going to get fixed. It’s a family thing, where everyone works to achieve the goal of going home.

Who influenced you most? My assistant counselor and Drake, who lived in the Peace Home with me. How has your faith changed? It’s been great. My friends at school started the fire in me, and everything has continued to fall into place since then. About Eagle Ranch: It’s a great place, and I thank God for being here– that’s for sure.

Jesse, The Praise Home
Length of stay at Eagle Ranch: 9 months. Favorite activities: Running, basketball, talking. Favorite memory: The loyalty in our home. What did you learn? To respect my parents and talk it out with them when I’m mad. What will you miss? The counselors, teachers, and my houseparents, Mr. Shawn and Mrs. Julie. Future plans: Finish high school and go to college. Who influenced you most? My houseparents. How has your faith changed? It changed a lot. When I first got here, I would just brush off my faith. But I came more toward Him than I was. Advice for others coming to Eagle Ranch: You change while you’re here.

Lindsey, The Glory Home
Length of stay at Eagle Ranch: 2 years. Favorite activities: One-on-one talks with my assistant counselors. Favorite memory: The teachers– how much they care. What did you learn? People can act a certain way because of their past. Who has influenced you the most? My teacher, Mr. Sheppard. How has your faith changed? I’ve been a Christian for nine years, but I’ve learned to trust Him more. I’ve learned that He actually is there, and He does care. Future plans: Interior design classes and college. Advice for others coming to Eagle Ranch: The kids here aren’t bad. We’re not juvenile delinquents; we’re just kids who have problems with their families. We’re just going through a hard time. This place cares and if you stick with the program it really will help you. You have so many opportunities here at this school that you wouldn’t have anywhere else.

McKensie, The Praise Home
Length of stay at Eagle Ranch: 10 months. Favorite activities: Working with the horses. Favorite memory: The Praise Home, field trips, school. What did you learn? I do have a choice, and I don’t have to do anything. I can choose my own way. What will you miss? My houseparents and my friends– the way they care about you. Future plans: Finish high school and go to college for either music or Spanish.

Nick, The Peace Home
Length of stay at Eagle Ranch: 2 years. Favorite memory: Laughing with Ms. Hodges and how all my teachers really cared about me. What did you learn? I saw how I treated others. I learned how to respect people, take ‘no’ as an answer and not hold onto things. What will you miss? Friends and especially the teachers– they’re really neat people. Future plans: Get through school and not worry about the future– God’s got that under control. Who influenced you most? My teachers, Ms. Hodges and Mrs. Channell. How has your faith changed? I’ve grown more in God. I do devotions with my roommate, and we pray together at night. Advice for others coming to Eagle Ranch: Don’t give up. You’ll think about running away, but stick with it. Make friends– I had an issue with that– friends help you and encourage you. Just like the Bible says, it’s better to have two people instead of one. When you’re down, there’s someone else to help you. I’ve made a lot of progress in my life, and I’m ready to move forward.

Who influenced you most? My houseparents, Mr. Shawn and Mrs. Julie, and my teacher, Mr. Sheppard. How has your faith changed? I would definitely say it’s stronger, because before I came here, I was just like ‘whatever.’ If I’m like this then there’s definitely not a God or anything. And since I’ve been able to change my attitude, it’s easier to see that He had to have a part in it.

Tiffany, The Praise Home
Length of stay: 3 years. Favorite memory: The school environment. The small classrooms and all the teachers really helped me excel. What did you learn? Don’t judge others, always give them the benefit of the doubt. It’s better to be honest, not to lie and manipulate yourself out of things. The main thing I learned was how to have a great relationship with my mom and God. What will you miss? Living with five other girls. I don’t have siblings, so it was fun to be with the girls; they were like sisters. Future plans: I’m going to Brenau Academy for 11th and 12th grade and then to Brenau University to study psychology.

Wendell, The Hope Home
Length of stay: 2 years. Favorite memory: Cooking lobster with my assistant counselor. Favorite activities: Skateboarding, basketball, ultimate frisbee. What did you learn? How to talk about my feelings and work things out with other people. What will you miss? My houseparents and their baby– they were like a second family. Future plans: Play football in high school and go to college. Who has influenced you most? My counselor, Bruce. If I was mad or needed to talk something out, he was there for me. How has your faith changed? I used to be not faithful, to always get in trouble. When I stopped doing that my faith came back, and I’ve had it now for a while; I still have it. I have more of a relationship with God. Advice for others at Eagle Ranch: Don’t give up, keep up with it. It helps me. Before I came here, I didn’t talk about anything; I was just quiet. It helped me just start talking more.

How has your faith changed? I opened myself up to God and accepted Jesus into my life on August 30, 2007. I’ve changed dramatically and have a wonderful relationship with God. Advice for others at Eagle Ranch: The Ranch was a blessing in my life. I had hit rock bottom. I had gone through everything. The Ranch opened my eyes and welcomed me with open arms.
