An urban oasis and a one-stop shop for at-risk foster youth
The Ranch – a former working farm in the midst of suburban Elk Grove – has quickly become an urban oasis and safe haven for girls and young women in crisis, many of whom are low-income, pregnant, and parenting, in the foster care system, homeless, sex trafficking victims, and/or recovering from recent addictions and abusive relationships. At the same time, the larger community has embraced it as a treasured resource, providing thousands of hours of volunteer work and hundreds of thousands of dollars in donated materials to turn The Ranch from a dilapidated, overrun property into a colorful and abundant place of healing.
