Our school works hard to develop academic, emotional, spiritual, and physical fitness by instilling discipline and helping them to rebuild relationships. Teens arrive at New Horizons Boys Ranch from around the country, including from Lincoln, Nebraska, and often find it beneficial to spend time in a new environment separate from local peer groups.
NHBR is a Christian residential program with a heart for character growth and family restoration. We provide services to 20 boys in a home-like atmosphere where struggling adolescents take on constructive life attitudes, grow in their faith, live in a safe and nurturing environment, and overcome their challenges and problems. We offset hard work with inviting recreation including fishing, hiking, horseback riding, hunting and swimming. Our picturesque mountainous location provides excellent opportunity for backpacking, camping and hiking.
Every boy begins by forming trust with an adult mentor. Strenuous activities and daily chores foster a solid work ethic and numerous other attractive character qualities. Then, supported by a relationship with a mentor, the adolescent can tackle the conflicts that had caused the need for intervention. We also provide 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 received transfer easily to any other school. The self-paced attribute of the coursework suits our students well, making it possible for them to learn in the way they find best and catch up on any missed credits. We believe discipline plays a key role in any productive education, and we communicate this in our classroom. Additionally, vocational training topics include automotive, construction, culinary, life skills, and ranching.
True family restoration occurs only with the total commitment of parents. We ask parents to attend three family workshops each year for coaching, family therapy and to visit their teen on our campus. We assist with frequent contact between parents and adolescents using tools such as letter writing, which strengthens communication and strengthens relationships without the emotional charge of face-to-face interaction.
We are a Christ-centered program that leads adolescents to find their place in life. Through mentorship, counseling, hard work and plenty of play, we teach values and character traits that will be profitable for your child for the rest of his or her life. Please think about looking outside of Lincoln, Nebraska to see how our caring program can bring restoration to your family.
