Be a Volunteer

Set your own time and decide what skill or talent you want to share. Many of the boys long to have a grandparent figure around. You can either spend time helping the boys in various projects or help the Ranch with various types of things needing to be done. We have full-time volunteer positions, part-time, or occasional.

We would love to hear from you if you want to help us in any of these areas:

Thrift store – sorting or displaying items for resale

Woodworking – help teach the boys how to make various wood projects like walking sticks, bird houses, plaques, repurposing furniture, etc.

Mechanics – teach boys fundamental techniques – like fluid checks, vehicle inspections, air pressure in tires, and other skills in that field

Cook – help prepare a meal with our cook or help teach our boys a certain aspect like making desserts, salads, etc.

Equipment repair – this could be as small as a weed eater or lawn mower to be repaired or working on more complex areas like working on farm machinery or even do some welding.

Perhaps you have farming or carpentry skills and would just like to help out from time to time with various projects we have going. You may have a skill not listed but want to do something to help.

We have some housing available if needed and you are always welcome to join us for meals.

Give us a call at 417-779-5374 or email us at and let us know how we can work together.
