The Ranch of Opportunity

A spacious and secluded rural setting where we provide chances, choices and hope for young women in need of a fresh start.

Our 22-acre tranquil ranch, located in Washington Court House in Fayette County is unlike any residential treatment facility in the country. During a six-to-eight month stay at the ranch, girls have the freedom to live, learn and grow—all in a peaceful, safe environment far away from the abuse and neglect they’ve experienced. At the ranch we take a holistic approach to treatment and wrap a continuum of services around each girl. Facilities include a 30-bed residence, a visitor center and equestrian facility filled with horses and barn animals that the girls use in therapy and lovingly look after.

Who are the girls at The Ranch of Opportunity? 

“Normal” teenage experiences can be both difficult and challenging for any young person. For some girls, mental health issues and extreme traumatic events such as separation from parents, physical abuse, sexual abuse, or teen pregnancy further complicate this trying time. These girls often engage in high-risk behaviors, self-harm, defiant or oppositional behaviors, sexual promiscuity, and drug or alcohol use. Due to many of the complex traumas that these girls have experienced, most if not all, have been diagnosed with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, or Major Depression.

Girls who are pregnant are not excluded from admission to the program. The clinical and medical staff works closely with the family and referring agencies to provide appropriate care for the expectant mother, for placement of the baby following birth, and for ultimate reconciliation of mother and child following discharge from the program.
