Foster Family Agency (FFA)
The training, fellowship, and appreciation that VTR provides truly makes for an unbelievable experience. You definitely become part of the VTR family and you never feel alone to figure this out on your own. Had our experience been different with VTR, we probably would not have continued expanding our family. How-ever, in 3 short years, we went from a family of 3 to a family of 6.

Every VTR social worker we have had has always had our back, supported us and were there any time we called, emailed or texted them with our questions. The have all actually become friends, and like family. The amount of time they spend with you helping meet your needs, and helping you with all of the minor details, is so awesome.

If it wasn’t for Valley Teen Ranch, I don’t know where I would be at.

Residential Therapeutic Program (STRTP)
Valley Teen Ranch staff actually care and will support what you want to do if you put your mind to it. They are always there if you need someone to talk to. They were there for me even when I was messing up. I am thankful for the program and all the support and guidance.
Graduates of the Program
I’ll never forget all the doors this program has opened for me and how it changed my life so much. The staff is here because they genuinely have a love for the kids and want to make a difference. While I was here, my achievements were; I graduated high school, learned how to deal with my anger and became less violent—I learned how to handle conflicts the right way, restored family relationships, entered college, learned the value of money, and grew up (to an extent), LOL
You have changed me in so many ways, I cannot explain. The staff at Valley Teen Ranch are very good-hearted. They have all helped me and guided me by challenging my way of thinking and giving me a whole new perspective. Thank you with all my heart!
