In Their Words

Ranch Bunkhouse

“Ya’ll are my family and I love ya’ll. Ya’ll are more than I could ever ask for; you loved me when I was unlovable.” -17 year old student, Second Chance Ranch

“You will ALWAYS be my dad even if you aren’t my houseparent anymore.” -18 year old student, Second Chance Ranch

“I love you. You showed me what a dad is supposed to be like verses what I was raised to believe. I’m thankful for everything you have done for me. You gave me a chance when everyone else turned their backs on me. You mean so much to me. I can never repay you for everything you have done for me. Thank you for giving me a chance.” -17 year old student, Second Chance Ranch

“When I first got here I thought you were just another person trying to be my mom. But I found out that you really do love me and I could ask for no better mom in this whole world.” -15 year old student, Second Chance Ranch

“There has always been this hole in my heart and I would fill it up with meanness or hate and selfishness. But you know what I always needed in that hole - it was you guys! (a family, a mom and a dad).” -15 year old student, Second Chance Ranch

“I finally know what it feels like to be hugged and know that that person really loves you.” -15 year old student, Second Chance Ranch

“You guys have taught me about God and faith.” -16 year old student, Second Chance Ranch

“I feel like one of the reasons God put me at the Ranch is because I always used to wish I had a mom just like everyone else.” -16 year old student, Second Chance Ranch
