A vision to provide shelter, food, and education to homeless teens.

About Us

Scorpion Creek Ranch stands as a beacon of hope and inspiration, dedicated to nurturing the potential of underserved youth, aged 14-18, who have faced adversity and lack the necessary resources to flourish in life or contribute positively to their community. Our mission revolves around empowering these young souls through a blend of therapeutic programs and practical experiences in a nurturing setting. By offering guidance, compassion, and tangible life skills, we aim to kindle a renewed spirit within them.

At the heart of Scorpion Creek Ranch lies a commitment to REBOOT, REJUVENATE, and REDIRECT. We provide holistic growth opportunities through hands-on vocational learning, tending to farm animals, equine therapy, cultivating food, culinary arts, recreational activities, and fostering emotionally sound communication and conflict resolution.

When essential compassion and support are missing, adolescents can find themselves grappling with emotional turmoil and rebellion. Feelings of inadequacy, despair, and fear can take root, leading to a cycle of instability, substance abuse, strained relationships, and legal issues. This pattern often trickles down through generations, eroding the foundation of our community. Within the sanctuary of Scorpion Creek Ranch, we create a warm and secure haven for those who haven't experienced the warmth of a supportive upbringing. The formative years of one's life ideally nurture the skills and values necessary for becoming a self-reliant, empathetic adult—skills like self-respect, problem-solving, effective communication, and a genuine appreciation for community bonds.

At Scorpion Creek Ranch, we stand poised to break this cycle. Our mission revolves around welcoming these young individuals into the fold of SCR's supportive embrace. Our approach is rooted in establishing connections that foster a sense of security, recognition, and inherent worth for these young hearts.

“You don’t really get to experience life as a teenager if you are constantly trying to fight for your own life.”

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”
