We believe that each boy who comes to the Ranch has been sent by God for a purpose; therefore, a lot of prayer and thoughtful consideration is given as to which applicants are accepted when openings are available.

How did you hear of the Ranch  


We ask the parents to help with these costs as they are able.  LUC provides  the opportunity for parents to help raise the necessary funds through various methods found on our parent support page.  One of the most successful ways of finding funds has been for parents to seek Sponsors who will give monthly tax deductible gifts of $10 or more.  Sponsors are normally families, friends, churches, and other community based sources in their area such as foundations, civic groups, businesses, corporations, etc.  Getting others involved helps provide a support group, extra people to help pray, and also involves the community in helping their youth become responsible citizens that will benefit that community in years to come.  To participate in this program, donors can find at this website our  mail in Sponsorship Forms, which can be copied and mailed. If you are a SPONSOR, please fill out the form  to help us link the boy you are helping with your gift.

Even though parents are seeking Sponsorships, most are not able to raise all of the funds that are needed and we need the help of anyone who wishes to help make a difference in a boy's life. The following  ON-LINE Forms allows you to choose a boy that you would like to Sponsor.   Your gift will make it possible for perhaps a single mother who is struggling just to meet the needs of each new day to find the help she needs for her son not to end up in the streets or in jail.  Many of our PARENTS need your help.

 When a boy is accepted into the LUC Program, those who have signed up to sponsor him will be notified. 

After we receive your gift, we will send a thank-you letter, a short update on the boy's progress, and a tax deductible receipt.
