NHBR is a faith-based residential program with a mission for character development and family renewal. We provide treatment to 20 boys in a home-like atmosphere in which troubled adolescents take on constructive life attitudes, flourish in their belief, experience a safe and nurturing environment, and triumph over their challenges and problems. We balance hard work with inviting recreation such as fishing, hiking, horseback riding, hunting and swimming. Our beautiful mountainous location provides excellent opportunity for backpacking, camping and hiking.
New Horizons Boys Ranch strives to promote academic, emotional, spiritual, and physical fitness by instilling discipline and helping them to rebuild relationships. Teens arrive at New Horizons Boys Ranch from across the country, including from Santa Ana, California, and often find it beneficial to spend time in a new environment detached from local peer groups.
Every boy begins by forming trust with an adult mentor. Engaging activities and daily chores contribute to a strong work ethic and numerous other desirable character qualities. Then, supported by a relationship with a mentor, the adolescent can work through the conflicts that had caused the need for intervention. We also offer individual and group counseling to bring change in attitudes and behaviors.
Boys at New Horizons Boys Ranch are provided a fully accredited school that also consists of independent study courses. All credits earned transfer easily to any other school. The self-paced quality of the coursework suits our students well, allowing them to learn as they do best and catch up on any missed credits. We believe discipline plays a key role in any productive education, and we convey this in our classroom. Additionally, vocational training topics include automotive, construction, culinary, life skills, and ranching.
Lasting family restoration happens only with the close involvement of parents. We ask parents to attend three family workshops each year for coaching, family therapy and to visit their child at our facility. We facilitate frequent contact between parents and their children using tools such as letter writing, which strengthens communication and relationship building without the emotional charge of face-to-face contact.
NHBR is a Christ-centered youth ranch that guides adolescents to find their place in life. Through mentorship, therapy, hard work and plenty of play, we stand by values and character traits that will serve your child all of his or her life. Please think about looking beyond Santa Ana, California to see how our caring program can bring restoration to your family.
