Alabama Sheriffs Youth Ranches
It's easier to build boys and girls than to repair men and women.
The mission of the Ranches is to provide Christian, family-style residential homes for Alabama's at-risk children and youth in an atmosphere where they may grow spiritually and physically into productive, responsible, and happy adults.
"I am very thankful for the [Colbert County Girls Ranch] and all that they've done for me. It is just one big family - I love it! They have made me a better person by loving me as I am and allowing me to become the person they knew I was capable of becoming." - C.
"I'm thankful for the ranch because, even though I have graduated and moved away, the lessons I learned there and the new life I gained will stay with me forever." - I.

Many are going on to attend college, several were on honor roll and are participating in various sports and extracurricular activities. They are so eager for upcoming school events like football games, dances, and club meetings. We will continuously be updating you throughout the school year.
