Founded in 1982, Eagle Ranch has served as a primary resource for Metro Atlanta’s children and families in crisis for over three decades. Originally founded as a home for boys, the program was expanded in 2001 to include girls. The same year, an on-campus school for Ranch children was opened. The SACS accredited school serves all Ranch children grades 6-9. In 2010, we opened two additional girls’ ...homes, bringing the total number of homes to ten (six boys’ homes and four girls’ homes). We can now serve 66 children on our campus at one time. Located in Flowery Branch, Georgia, Eagle Ranch is a community uniquely designed to help make life better for children and families going through a crisis. We use an integrated approach, built on Christian principles, that models home life, emphasizes education, and incorporates individual and group counseling. Boys and girls live on Eagle Ranch’s peaceful 310-acre campus, giving them the time and space they need to work through their struggles. We keep families connected and actively involved during their child’s stay at the Ranch. Our aim is for renewal: of the child’s individual purpose and identity; of positive relationships among family members; and of hope for a more promising future for everyone we serve.
