NHBR is a Christian residential program with a heart for character development and family unity. We provide services to 20 boys in a home-like atmosphere in which struggling adolescents take on more positive life attitudes, grow in their faith, find a safe and nurturing environment, and overcome their challenges and problems. We offset hard work with engaging recreation such as fishing, hiking, horseback riding, hunting and swimming. Our picturesque mountainous location is a great place for backpacking, camping and hiking.
New Horizons Boys Ranch endeavors to encourage academic, emotional, spiritual, and physical fitness by instilling discipline and helping them to rebuild relationships. Teens come to New Horizons Boys Ranch from across the nation, including from Ventura, California, and often find it constructive to spend time in a new environment separate from local peer groups.
Each teen begins by forming trust with an adult mentor. Strenuous activities and daily chores contribute to a strong work ethic and countless other positive character qualities. Then, in context of a relationship with a mentor, the adolescent can overcome the conflicts that had caused the need for intervention. We also use 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 attribute of the coursework suits our students well, permitting them to learn as they do best and catch up on any missed credits. We believe discipline plays a key part in any worthwhile education, and we communicate this in our classroom. Additionally, vocational training topics include automotive, construction, culinary, life skills, and ranching.
Lasting family restoration happens only with the full cooperation of parents. We request parents to attend three family workshops each year for coaching, family therapy and to visit their child on our campus. We facilitate frequent contact between parents and teens using tools such as letter writing, which strengthens communication and strengthens relationships without the emotional charge of face-to-face interaction.
NHBR is a faith-based youth ranch that leads adolescents to find their place in life. Through mentorship, therapy, hard work and plenty of play, we teach values and character traits that will benefit your child into adulthood. Please consider looking outside of Ventura, California to see how our caring program can bring about restoration in your family.
