Non-Profit Rio Verde Ranch Working With Kids

Our children are our future. Every child deserves to be loved and children deserve to play no matter what their story or age.

To allow a child to grow into a functional and productive member of society they need confidence. They need to know that they are worthy, that they are loved, that they belong and that they matter. They need to know that their decisions make an impact on those around them and that they are responsible and need to be accountable for those decisions.

Here at Reigning Grace Ranch, we base all of our mentorship object lessons around traditional values such as:

  • Communication
  • Responsibility
  • Decision Making
  • Self-Awareness
  • Patience
  • Hope
  • Focus
  • Coping Skills
  • Leadership
  • Compassion
  • Kindness
  • Teamwork
  • Love
  • Respect
  • Accountability
  • Family
  • Honesty
  • Openness

We believe in meeting our children and teens right where they are. We foster play in a loving, safe environment.

We heard a child once say, “at the ranch, the world is not allowed in.” That broke our hearts on so many levels but it also created a joy in us that the child was experiencing something so different that there was and could be another side of this world if they chose to live it.

At Reigning Grace Ranch we mentor a wide variety of children and teens from divorce, self-esteem issues, eating disorders, high functioning autism, MMR, social awkwardness, the list goes on.


Reigning Grace Ranch is a place of tranquility and refuge on 15-acres in the beautiful Arizona desert. Home to some 40 rehabilitated and rescued horses, goats, chickens, donkeys and a cow…named Norman…we support our mission of Redemption, Strength, and Discovery by striving to create a healing sanctuary in our community for those who need it most – Arizona at-risk youth, Arizona Foster kids, and at-risk families.
