Who We Are

West Texas Boys Ranch is a non-profit organization offering guidance, structure and opportunities through a family-based program and Christian environment so young men may realize their greatest potential.

Since its inception more than 70 years ago, West Texas Boys Ranch has served thousands of boys from Texas and beyond.

At West Texas Boys Ranch a boy is measured by his potential rather than his past. It’s here in a family setting and ranch environment where boys rediscover their self-respect and become useful, proud and productive citizens.

West Texas Boys Ranch is a place where boys learn the value of work, grow spiritually and achieve academic success through the example of a caring staff.

West Texas Boys Ranch is licensed by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services to provide residential basic child care for up to 39 boys. We accept boys ages 11-17 from Texas and the 4 bordering states, Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico and Oklahoma. The Ranch is licensed to provide program services for (a) child care and (b) transitional living. West Texas Boys Ranch is a qualified non profit IRC Section 501 (c) (3). West Texas Boys Ranch is a public charity.
