Renewed Hope Ranch has given us our baby girl back. She has grown so much in her time with the Ranch. Gone is my snarky, scary teenager and in her place, we have a sweet, kind, and excellent communicator. I cannot say enough good things about this program and what is has given to my family!

Ever since coming to RHR I feel like I have my life back! I am happy again and have amazing relationships with my family, and can look at myself and see nothing but beauty. Renewed Hope Ranch has given me my life back.

Given My Life Back

Sending Kiari away for treatment is one of the scariest things I have ever done. As soon as we got here, and met the staff and the other girls, I knew this was the right place. The girls themselves expressed how they realize this is where they needed to be, and my daughter was soon saying the same thing. Involving the parents (and the whole family) to the extent that you do was such an important piece and helped all of us heal and grow, not just Kiari.

– Melanie Duggan

Being here has changed my life. I struggled with low self-image, drug abuse, and really bad relationships with everyone around me. Now I have confidence in myself and my capabilities, and seriously improved relationships with my family. I’m moving into an apartment and going to college in the fall; without Renewed Hope Ranch, I would never be where I am today.

Life changing healing

Renewed Hope Ranch gave me my daughter back. The healing and growth that has taken place with my daughter has been indescribable. The staff does a wonderful job in all aspects and avenues. Transformative blend of therapy, discipline and a caring environment to give these girls what they need to turn their lives around. Forever thankful for this place and experience.

– Jen Weinstein

I didn’t really have much of a chance at having a healthy life before I came to Renewed Hope Ranch, so this has truly been a life-saving experience for me. Renewed Hope Ranch is a safe haven for any girl looking for an environment built for growth and healing. I had been to a different treatment center a couple years ago and not many things changed after that, so I left feeling like I had no chance of ever getting better. When I came to the Ranch, I was shown that getting help is possible and that hope is real, and I was given the opportunity to build my own future. I feel prepared to go home and start my life, stay consistent, and continue to make improvements on myself, and I wouldn’t be where I am at today if it wasn’t for Renewed Hope Ranch. The atmosphere here is filled with a sense of home, so it was easier for me to adjust in the beginning because there was so much support, love, and care around me. I am so grateful for the Ranch and everything that I have learned here and all of the staff and girls that have made my success possible. RHR will always have a special place in my heart and I will hold close what I have learned about life, relationships, and hope.

Forever thankful

This has been a long and difficult journey for Taylor and our family. She came to you depressed, unable to socialize, unable to interact with her siblings, lacking motivation and focus. We’d tried years of therapy, groups, medications and anything else we could think of to try and get her on the right track. But you’ve managed to get her to make positive changes that we couldn’t.

The Taylor that we see today is a better version of herself. She has more self confidence, she has motivation and more focus than I thought she was capable of and she’s more aware of the feelings of those around her. Her and I have conversations that were never possible in the past and she communicates more effectively with everyone. This is awesome to say the least. Thanks to you and your staff I feel confident about her future.

Again, thank you for the wonderful work you and your staff did. I’d be happy to recommend The Ranch or to speak with anyone who is apprehensive of sending their daughter there. You have my utmost gratitude.

Sincerely,
Kalani Childs

Confident In Her Future

Our daughter was continuously making poor choices that were prohibiting any chance of a happy, fruitful future. As a family, it was incredibly hard to see this downward progression which led us to research treatment facilities that could help. Coming to the realization that your family is faced with needing a residential treatment facility is not easy to say the least. There are so many questions, unknowns, and emotional aspects that put your family to the ultimate test. I was referred to Renewed Hope Ranch and started speaking with Natalie who proved to be an incredible resource. She helped us navigate through the many tough issues we were dealing with. We did visit RHR, it was immediately apparent this was the right fit for our daughter. The facility is built solely for residential treatment, clean, and well-maintained. The staff was friendly and we were able to get a feel for what a day at the ranch is like for the girls. I spoke with Rick prior to making the final decision; he took the time to answer any questions I had. He’s been in the same challenging situation and was very open with sharing his family story.

The positive peer culture, PPC, used at RHR proved to be an influential factor in helping our daughter. PPC paired with one-on-one and family counseling sessions was the solution we needed. These sessions were incredible for our family, not only did we get to see her progress, we were able to see her become more comfortable and confident with herself. Tori, our counselor, was nothing short of amazing and always willing to help in any way she could; she treats the girls as if they were her own. Kensie, the education specialist, helped her study for the GED and pass so that she could return home and begin college. This was no small feat–Kensie provided the inspiration needed and pushed our daughter to aspire for more.

Our daughter has graduated and is doing well. There are still challenges as that is part of life, but now, our daughter has the tools to deal with them in a constructive manner which was completely impossible before.

We would like to express our gratitude from the bottom of our hearts. The staff at Renewed Hope Ranch have given our daughter a second chance at life.

From the Bottom of Our Hearts

The Ranch helped me turn my life around and changed me for the better. I was putting myself in dangerous situations and if I wasn’t sent here I would probably be dead or in jail. Renewed Hope Ranch saved my life, better yet it changed me. RHR helped me learn how to love myself and my family. The staff at RHR understands what we girls have gone through. The staff has so much love and care for us that it shows within this place.

Understanding and Love

Nine months ago my husband and I had to make one of the toughest decisions of our lives. We had our daughter transported to RHR. Our daughter had been spiraling out of control for the past couple of years. We had her in and out of treatment facilities, constant therapy, but nothing seemed to work for her. We knew we needed something long term and more intense therapy for her, but did not know what that was. We started doing research on residential treatment and reaching out to different sources that lead us to RHR.

I spoke with Natalie about the process and paperwork. Natalie was great. She was so helpful and understanding of our situation.

Within a few days we received the call that Hailey would be excepted to the program. It was the answer to our prayers.

When we arrived for our first parent weekend we knew the second we walked in the door that we had made the right decision. We felt the compassion, love and support that the staff had for our family and all the other families there. We finally found the hope that we had lost. The entire staff at Renewed Hope Ranch is truly amazing, and we will forever be grateful for all they have done for our family.

Our daughter is home and doing well. We know that we will have our struggles, but we now have the tools to help us get through them.

The Answer to Our Prayers

The Renewed Hope Ranch changed my life. I was a strung out druggie with no future. I am leaving today with knowledge, skills, and support that no girl my age has. I am so grateful for this place and the staff.

A Second Chance

We can only think of two words to describe the essence of RHR: love and family.

A few months ago, my family experienced one of the most difficult challenges in our lives. We looked for help everywhere: different therapists, medical, institutions. Unfortunately we never got the help our family needed. We asked God to help us find the right place for our daughter. And one afternoon, I was searching through the internet, I made a phone call. From the beginning of our conversation, Natalie made my husband and I feel like someone understood exactly what we were going through. We just knew we had found the place that would offer our family the help we needed to overcome this battle. We also talked to Rick, one of the magnificent founders of the this place and he shared his personal experience with us–we knew at that point that we weren’t alone in this journey. In the process we also met Stephen, the director of this extraordinary treatment facility, as well as the amazing staff they have selected with such big hearts. Our lives have changed; we found hope, love, support. For a moment we thought we had lost our daughter. Julie is now back at home, and we still have our struggles every now and again, but we continue to make use of all the tools we learned at Renewed Hope Ranch. This is a home away from home. I can sincerely say these words because we witnessed the love and support that young ladies receive from every single member of Renewed Hope Ranch- not only from the staff but from each other. We ourselves have the honor of engaging with the girls and notice great changes in them. If anybody would like to reach out to us, please feel absolutely free to contact us.
