Ways to help

Pray

Pray for our children and staff. We value your prayers as our most important resource. We depend on God’s provision of resources and guidance for helping youth and their families to redeem the past, restore peace in their hearts and renew hope for a brighter future, one step at a time.

“We can be certain that God will give us the strength and resources we need to live through any situation in life that He ordains. The will of God will never take us where the grace of God cannot sustain us.” ~ Billy Graham

Learn

We welcome you to learn more about the ministry of Stepping Stones Ranch by scheduling a tour. During the tour you can experience the beautiful surroundings of the 45 acre horse ranch and tour the home. We provide an atmosphere of growth and healing where students experience love, peace and hope. We welcome you to learn how you can make a difference in the lives of local youth.

Share

Share the story of how God is using Stepping Stones Ranch to change lives. You can help us share hope by scheduling a speaking engagement for one of our staff to speak to your church, corporate or civic organization. We welcome the opportunity to share about challenges that youth face and how together we can make a difference.

Serve

We appreciate our volunteers and how they support the mission of Stepping Stones Ranch. We operate as a ranch family and our students are involved in property care and care of the home. From time to time, we need help from many hands that can make the work lighter and have opportunities for individuals and groups to serve as a volunteer.

Individuals

Volunteers can help provide property care and maintenance. We especially need support in areas of trades including: plumbing, electrician, and mechanics. Many projects have the need to use a dump truck, or a bob cat for projects. Another area that is a meaningful experience for all involved is to participate in our Independent Life Skills program. We value volunteers who want to share a skill or talent with the girls. This can include opportunities like music lessons, craft projects, cooking, job shadowing, sewing or even car mechanics! In addition, we have volunteer days where people can sign up and help us during a spring or fall project day.

Groups

We welcome groups to learn how they can serve together. Often we have projects that need sponsored by a group which will include providing the needed skills, monetary cost and supplies to accomplish projects. We welcome food drives and plants, mulch or seeds in the spring!

Please call the Ranch at 937-289-0100 to learn about current volunteer opportunities, projects and guidelines for volunteering.
