New Horizons Boys Ranch strives 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 Marion, Iowa, and often find it constructive to spend time in a new environment away from local peer groups.
New Horizons Boys Ranch is a Christian residential program with a heart for character maturity and family renewal. We provide services to 20 boys in a home-like atmosphere where troubled adolescents take on better life attitudes, grow in their belief, experience a safe and nurturing environment, and overcome their challenges and problems. We offset hard work with inviting recreation such as fishing, hiking, horseback riding, hunting and swimming. Our gorgeous mountainous location has much to offer in backpacking, camping and hiking.
Each teen begins by forming a relationship with an adult mentor. Engaging activities and daily chores contribute to a strong work ethic and countless other positive character qualities. Then, supported by a relationship with a mentor, the teen can overcome the destructive choices 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 uses independent study courses. All credits earned transfer easily to any other school. The self-paced quality of the coursework suits our students well, allowing 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 worthwhile education, and we convey this in our classroom. In addition, vocational training topics include automotive, construction, culinary, life skills, and ranching.
True family restoration takes place only with the close involvement of parents. We ask parents to attend three family workshops per year for coaching, family therapy and to visit their teen on our campus. We support frequent contact between parents and their children using tools such as letter writing, which reinforces 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 believe in values and character traits that will benefit your child for the rest of his or her life. Please think about looking outside of Marion, Iowa to see how our caring program can lead to restoration in your family.
