Did you know that the ranch accepts no state or federal funding? We are entirely dependent upon donations and tuition paid by our residents. In order to keep costs to our residents and their families down, we look for help from outside sources, which include friends of the ranch, local businesses, and sometimes not-so-local businesses.
Cost to families and ranchers can be high. According to Google, the average family income in our local area is in the $47,000. The average cost of maintaining a residence here at the ranch is around $27,000, at current rates. Imagine that. The ranch provides housing, transportation, food and meal preparation, exercise, activities like Life Skills and Arts & Crafts, medication administration, scheduling of medical appointments, 24/7 staffing, money management, and generally coaching through the challenges of daily living (laundry, household chores, gardening, animal care and feeding, and communication with family and friends.)
So, we're coming up on "Giving Tuesday", November 29th. Check out our "donate" page on the website. If you can find it in your heart, and your budget, to make a donation to Triangle Cross Ranch, we would sincerely appreciate it. Please donate - big or small, it all adds up and goes toward caring for our ranchers.
