New Horizons Boys Ranch works hard to promote academic, emotional, spiritual, and physical fitness by instilling discipline and coaching them to rebuild relationships. Teens attend New Horizons Boys Ranch from across the nation, including from Gary, Indiana, and often find it valuable to grow in a new environment separate from local peer groups.
New Horizons Boys Ranch is a faith-based residential school with a mission for character growth and family restoration. We provide services to 20 boys in a home-like environment in which struggling adolescents take on constructive life attitudes, flourish in their belief, experience a safe and nurturing environment, and overcome their challenges and problems. We offset hard work with engaging recreation including fishing, hiking, horseback riding, hunting and swimming. Our beautiful mountainous location is a great place for backpacking, camping and hiking.
Each boy begins by forming trust with an adult mentor. Engaging activities and daily chores build a strong work ethic and countless other positive character qualities. Then, in context of a relationship with a mentor, the child can overcome the destructive choices that had caused the need for intervention. We also offer individual and group counseling to improve attitudes and behaviors.
Residents at New Horizons Boys Ranch are provided a fully accredited school that also offers independent study courses. All credits received 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 productive education, and we convey this in our classroom. Additionally, vocational training topics include automotive, construction, culinary, life skills, and ranching.
Genuine family restoration occurs only with the full cooperation of parents. We ask parents to attend three family workshops during the year for coaching, family therapy and to visit their child at our facility. We facilitate frequent contact between parents and adolescents using tools such as letter writing, which strengthens communication and relationship building without the emotional charge of face-to-face interaction.
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 believe in values and character traits that will be profitable for your child all of his or her life. Please consider looking beyond Gary, Indiana to see how our caring program can bring about restoration in your family.
