PREPARE FOR THE NEXT STEP

Whether Iowa youth, families, veterans or active service members, our vision is the same—to prepare people for the next step in their lives.

Since 2001, we’ve made a 10-year commitment to each at-risk student who comes to the Ranch—an unprecedented approach! When a child enters the Next Steps Program at eight years old we stick with them, inviting students back to the Ranch multiple times every year. The Ranch becomes a consistent safe harbor as they navigate the storms of life.

We’re equipping our students to finish high school and prepare for college, trade certification or employment. Each step in our program is designed to inspire our students to become healthy, engaged, meaningful members of our communities—difference makers in their families, change agents in their communities.

Practical, foundational tools rooted in God’s truths facilitate personal growth in our students:

  • Values training
  • Leadership development
  • Financial literacy
  • Wellness techniques
