We transform the lives of abused, abandoned, and neglected children who have been removed from their families. We keep siblings together as an alternative to foster care. We give them a home of their own and are equipped with tools they need for success in life. Our children live with us long-term and are raised in a loving family farm setting where the children will remain, together, until the age of maturation/college.
Serve A Meal - Perhaps the easiest way to get involved as a volunteer is helping to prepare and serve either breakfast or dinner to our kids. Group Projects - Most of our projects are suitable for up to 10 people, but occasionally we can work with larger groups on a case-by-case basis.
Special Events - El Ranchito organizes several major fundraising and awareness events each year. We rely on volunteers to plan, organize, produce, and serve at each event. Long Term Volunteers commit to serving in a relational and/or service capacity with our children. You'll have the chance to invest in them and change their lives in ways that extend far into the future.
Mentors - Mentors are needed to spend time and build relationships with our children (ages 3 to 18) We're looking for adults (minimum age of 21) who are committed to meeting once a week for one to three hours for a minimum of one year. Tutors - Tutors build positive relationships, help students in a variety of academic subjects, and encourage students in their educational development. Students are ages 3-18.
Special Project Change Makers provide a special service (give piano lessons, organize art projects, etc.) for our kids. Internships - Get hands-on experience in nonprofit, human services, and children’s ministry fields. Our internships are open to high school and college students. Both full-time and part-time internships are available.
