Masters Ranch is a lower-cost therapeutic ranch designed just for at-risk and struggling boys between the ages of 9 and 17. Master’s Ranch is located on a sprawling ranch property on the border of Arkansas and Missouri, near Couch, Missouri, and we have a new ranch in Washington State.
Boys at Masters Ranch find new help, healing and reconciliation when they had almost lost hope. Masters Ranch offers a small family environment in an agricultural setting with a balance of discipline and training in an unmistakable atmosphere of mentoring, love and acceptance. Through education, hard work, vocational training, working with animals, recreation, family interaction and counseling, each boy is given the tools needed to regain the confidence, self-respect and spiritual footing necessary to embrace his family and his future.
The dedicated staff of Masters Ranch is committed to helping you fight for your boy’s future and to help him rebuild the smoldering bridges of relationships with family, society at large and ultimately with God. This critical time will also allow you to re-focus on your home and your other children while staff in this program work with and help your son. Masters Ranch rates are affordable, so most families can be helped in their time of need.
Masters Ranch operates as much as possible like a family, rather than a cold institution. The one major advantage that this program has over the average American family is that it focuses ALL its attention on your son. A normal family is stretched so thin today with extra jobs, activities, responsibilities and other pressing family duties. The problem is that troubled teens require so much more time, energy and effort than most kids. So much of what takes place at Masters Ranch is what you also did and tried to do; to just walk through the hours, days, weeks and months of life, with the boys, using every moment as an opportunity for learning. Staff strives to present everything they do with a positive attitude that will benefit your son.
Masters Ranch has professional clinical-type counseling from licensed therapists as well as pastoral, group and individual counseling. The approach to counseling is informal, often utilizing the outdoors and activities as the setting, believing that teens who feel comfortable and safe will open up and share more readily while they are active. They also work with parents to bring them hope and encouragement and new tools for continuing the progress once your boy returns home.
