In 1975, a small group of concerned Lubbock area citizens opened Texas Boys Ranch on donated land between Lubbock and Idalou. These men were concerned about the growing need to help young men in the area who continued to make bad choices in their lives or who were in need of guidance and love they simply were unable to find in their home family. Since that time, Texas Boys Ranch has worked with boys and young men to give them a second chance when they needed it – sometimes a third or fourth chance.
Unaffiliated with any other “ranches” in the South Plains, West Texas, or Panhandle regions of Texas, Texas Boys Ranch is an independent, Christ-centered agency unaffiliated with any particular denomination. Today, Texas Boys Ranch has a strong, nationally accredited campus residential program, emergency shelter, and foster care program that is impacting the lives of many boys and girls on a daily basis. Texas Boys Ranch has developed an outstanding reputation with local, county, and state agencies that are charged with helping the abused and neglected children of our area.
In 1983, Texas Boys Ranch Foundation was created to help support the work of Texas Boys Ranch. The Foundation is challenged with the job of managing and growing the gifts and donations of its supporters in order to provide for long-term growth and stability of the Ranch. With your help, the help of so many folks who believe in helping young people, and the Lord’s blessings, Texas Boys Ranch Foundation will continue its vital role of supporting this ministry far into the future.
