Children are our most valuable gift, the promise of our future. They belong in loving, stable families and deserve safe and thriving environments. Sadly, we recognize this is not always the case for some youth. The care and treatment desperately required by some older youth cannot be met safely and effectively by their families or in a traditional foster family or kinship setting. Empower 7 is called to fill this gap.

Empower 7’s primary goal is to build a safe, serene residential community where vulnerable youth, ages 13-24, may transform themselves into purposeful adults. This place is lovingly referred to as “The Empower 7 Ranch” or simply “The Ranch.” The development will include cottage group homes, common areas for educational, recreational, and social activities, and structures for farming and ranching. 

The Ranch will offer the following in a Christ-centered atmosphere:

  • Food, clothing, shelter

  • Diagnostic assessment and individually tailored treatment plans

  • Individual, family and group counseling

  • Family support services

  • Clinical support and coordination for psychiatric needs

  • Life skills training

  • Recreational activities

  • Equine therapeutic services

  • Education – core curriculum and tutoring services

  • Mentoring programs

  • Cooperative work programs

  • Preparation for independent living

Ultimately, our youth will leave our care with confidence, dignity, purpose and eagerness to make the world a better place to live.


No one can change their past, but we can positively impact their future. Connect with us to make a difference in the lives of the vulnerable.

Faith, Hope, Love, but the greatest of these is LOVE. 1 Corinthians 13:13
