Youth Mentoring
Dreamhaven Ranch is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to offer children and their families, regardless of their circumstances, a safe rural environment to discover hope and healing by the grace of God and the unconditional love of a horse.

The foundation of the program is youth mentoring. An individual child is paired with an adult leader and one of the Dreamhaven horses for a 90-minute riding or ground education session, tailored to meet the distinctive needs of the child. Through this hands-on experience, children share their challenges and victories, while leaders model the values of family and community that our country was founded on.

We invite children to come as they are with the only true prerequisite being that they are willing and want to participate.

Volunteer Program
In an age of broken, blended and busy households, the ranch community at Dreamhaven seeks to offer what every child and adult desires the most - a sense of belonging.

In addition to mentoring program for children (which is offered free of charge thanks to generous donations from the community), Dreamhaven Ranch offers a volunteer program for adults and families. Working side by side to assist with the chores of caring for animals and tending to the garden and grounds, hearts are mended as kids, families and staff work together in the spirit of community. The rural lifestyle is calming and healing.
