N—Necessary to the community Each individual plays an important role as a volunteer, a voice and a vital participant in our protected community as well as the community at large.
O—Oriented to daily living Learning to live in the role of an independent adult takes time and training. We’re willing to allow as much as necessary to ensure success.
R—Realistic in expectations Mistakes are God’s greatest learning tool. Rather than deny them, we embrace them for the lessons that are learned through them.
M—Moral in action With Christ as our moral compass, our Ranchers learn to take responsibility for their words, actions and decisions with plenty of forgiveness and second chances on a daily, hourly and minute-by-minute basis.
A—Ability beyond disability Our focus is on abilities and what each person CAN do. Ranchers and staff support each other in their weaknesses.
L—Loved beyond measure We believe that every life is valuable and precious, no matter the abilities or disabilities. Love is unconditional, praise is loud and the laughter is contagious!
