Supporting the work of Texas Girls & Boys Ranch by helping donors like you create a lasting endowment that provides a strong & reliable source of funding for the ministry of “Sharing Jesus, Healing Hearts, Transforming Lives.”
In 1973, a small group of concerned Lubbock area citizens opened Texas Boys Ranch on donated land between Lubbock and Idalou. These men were concerned about the growing need to help young men in the area who continued to make bad choices in their lives or who were in need of guidance and love they simply were unable to find in their home family. Since that time, Texas Boys Ranch has worked with boys and young men to give them a second chance when they needed it – sometimes a third or fourth chance.

While Texas Boys Ranch has been serving girls for many years, in 2021, they officially changed their name and branding to Texas Girls and Boys Ranch.

Unaffiliated with any other “ranches” in the South Plains, West Texas, or Panhandle regions of Texas, Texas Girls & Boys Ranch is an independent, Christ-centered agency unaffiliated with any particular denomination. Today, Texas Girls & Boys Ranch has a strong, nationally accredited campus residential program, emergency shelter, and foster care program that is impacting the lives of many boys and girls on a daily basis. Texas Girls & Boys Ranch has developed an outstanding reputation with local, county, and state agencies that are charged with helping the abused and neglected children of our area.

Texas Girls & Boys Ranch Foundation has been helping big-hearted friends like you since 1990 make powerful life-changes in children who have suffered abuse & neglect. By utilizing tax-wise strategic planning, compassionate & charitably-minded people of all walks of life have been able to make a greater impact in the lives of disadvantaged youth in West Texas through a permanent endowment dedicated to the mission of “Sharing Jesus, Healing Hearts, Transforming Lives.”

Each year, from earnings on its assets, the Foundation helps make possible the programs and services rendered by Texas Girls & Boys Ranch to the children and families it serves. This would not be possible without the friendship, prayers, and support of those who share the desire to give children a chance to grow and mature physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
