You can help Jacob.

He is one of the boys sleeping at the ranch tonight.

When Jacob arrived at the ranch, he tried to remain isolated and often he would withdraw to his room.  Jacob was often angry expressing his anger in his words and actions—a rollercoaster of emotion. This is often typical in youth who have experienced trauma.  After a while though, through therapy, specialized care, education, and building relationships with staff and friends on The Ranch, Jacob’s attitude improved and he started embracing his opportunity to heal.

One day, while exploring feelings through an art project, Jacob started sharing about his experience at the Ranch.  Jacob said, “There are cool staff here. They have shown me what respect means by treating me with respect. They explain things to me and help me calm down to think about what I am doing.”   Because of this, he helped his roommate think about a situation differently and stopped him from acting out.  Jacob said, after that happened, he realized that he wants to help others someday.

Please help us provide a space that shows them respect,care and a feeling of home.
