Sponsor a Child...
Thank you, friend, for your desire to sponsor a child as they grow through their sessions at Stable Days Youth Ranch! The overall purpose of our session program is to gently love and boldly encourage children to lean into their potential and toward the hope and strength made ready for them through faith in Jesus Christ.
Each session is as unique as the child it is designed for. In this safe place kid's can talk about life, hurts, highs and lows, discovering the truth that their life can be both good and hard, and that doesn't change how valued they are. Each session will generally include:
Purposeful Conversation: As our session leaders ask thoughtful questions and listen for honest answers kids feel supported, understood and ready to break down the walls of self preservation that confusing and difficult times have caused them to build. Leaders are trained to listen well, looking to the heart of each conversation, measuring each success and every struggle to find a common ground, a starting point in which to build a unique, fun, beautiful and challenging experiences that will make a difference and will be remembered.
Ranch Tasks: Every child/leader pair will complete a 20-minute ranch task, this time is designed to teach the importance of serving others through cheerful giving. This time often includes work in the Share Garden where conversations about food justice, access, hunger and nutrition can be explored.
Horsemanship Skills: Session leaders will coach kiddos through grooming, tacking, leading and even riding the horse they are assigned to care for. Understanding the nature of the horse and how God has designed them to communicate with us is a unique and empowering experience.
Because of the generosity of individuals like yourself, ALL activities for session participants and visitors of the Ranch continues to be free of charge. Yet, much money is needed to maintain our horses, programs and facility. Your gifts allow us to serve kids and families at no cost to them, as well as provide a safe home for the horses they love.
A monthly donation of $40.00 will cover the cost of one monthly visit for one child. A monthly donation of $160.00 will cover the cost of one weekly visit for one child.
Thank you for considering gifting the ranch in this way! We are so very grateful for your kindness and support. Please note your giving intention on the message line. For example, " I would like my gift to sponsor a child."
