New Horizons Boys Ranch endeavors to encourage academic, emotional, spiritual, and physical fitness by teaching discipline and helping them to rebuild relationships. Adolescents arrive at New Horizons Boys Ranch from across the nation, including from Kansas City, Kansas, and often find it advantageous to spend time in a new environment detached from local peer groups.
NHBR is a faith-based residential program focused on character maturity and family unity. We provide services to 20 boys in a home-like environment in which troubled adolescents take on constructive life attitudes, flourish in their faith, live in a safe and nurturing environment, and conquer their challenges and problems. We balance hard work with inviting recreation such as fishing, hiking, horseback riding, hunting and swimming. Our gorgeous mountainous location is a great place for backpacking, camping and hiking.
Every adolescent begins by forming trust with an adult mentor. Challenging activities and daily chores build a strong work ethic and countless other positive character qualities. Then, supported by a relationship with a mentor, the teen can tackle the destructive choices that had caused the need for intervention. We also offer individual and group counseling to improve attitudes and behaviors.
Boys at New Horizons Boys Ranch are provided a fully accredited school that also consists of 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 role in any worthwhile education, and we communicate this in our classroom. In addition, vocational training topics include automotive, construction, culinary, life skills, and ranching.
True family restoration occurs only with the full cooperation of parents. We ask parents to attend three family workshops each year for coaching, family therapy and to visit their child on our campus. We assist with frequent contact between parents and adolescents using tools such as letter writing, which promotes communication and relationship building without the emotional charge of face-to-face contact.
NHBR is a Christ-centered youth ranch that leads 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 benefit your child into adulthood. Please think about looking beyond Kansas City, Kansas to see how our caring program can lead to restoration in your family.
