New Horizons Boys Ranch works hard to encourage academic, emotional, spiritual, and physical fitness by teaching discipline and helping them to rebuild relationships. Teens come to New Horizons Boys Ranch from across the country, including from Kansas City, Missouri, and often find it beneficial to grow in a new environment away from local peer groups.
NHBR is a Christian residential program with a mission for character development and family restoration. We provide treatment to 20 boys in a home-like atmosphere where struggling adolescents adopt constructive life attitudes, grow in their belief, experience a safe and nurturing environment, and conquer their challenges and problems. We balance hard work with engaging recreation such as fishing, hiking, horseback riding, hunting and swimming. Our beautiful mountainous location has much to offer in backpacking, camping and hiking.
Every boy begins by building trust with an adult mentor. Challenging activities and daily chores contribute to a solid work ethic and numerous other desirable character qualities. Then, in context of a relationship with a mentor, the child can work through the conflicts that had held him or her back. We also use individual and group counseling to improve attitudes and behaviors.
Boys at New Horizons Boys Ranch are provided a fully accredited school that also uses independent study courses. All credits earned transfer easily to any other school. The self-paced quality of the coursework suits our students well, permitting them to learn in the way they find 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. In addition, vocational training topics include automotive, construction, culinary, life skills, and ranching.
True family restoration occurs only with the close involvement of parents. We require parents to attend three family workshops during the year for coaching, family therapy and to visit their child on our campus. We support frequent contact between parents and teens using tools such as letter writing, which strengthens communication and relationship building without the emotional charge of face-to-face interaction.
We are a faith-based program that leads adolescents to find their place in life. Through mentorship, counseling, hard work and plenty of play, we believe in values and character traits that will serve your child all of his or her life. Please think about looking outside of Kansas City, Missouri to see how our caring program can lead to restoration in your family.
