Mark Your Calendars for May 1st

Summer is right around the corner and with it, hundreds of children that are in need of love, shelter, protection, food and educational assistance at Wildwood Hills Ranch of Iowa. The Ranch serves vulnerable youth year-round at our 400-acre safe haven but we have the most students on site and staying with us during our summer programming sessions. On average, The Ranch serves over 1,000 youth at-risk and veterans in need annually.

The programming we provide is of no cost to the youth served and we raise all funds through grants, donations and fundraisers.

We Need YOU!
