New Horizons Boys Ranch strives to encourage academic, emotional, spiritual, and physical fitness by instilling discipline and helping them to rebuild relationships. Teens attend New Horizons Boys Ranch from around the country, including from Van Nuys, California, and often find it constructive to grow in a new environment separate from local peer groups.
NHBR is a faith-based residential program focused on character growth and family unity. We provide treatment to 20 boys in a home-like environment in which troubled adolescents adopt more positive life attitudes, grow in their belief, live in a safe and nurturing environment, and overcome their challenges and problems. We balance hard work with engaging recreation such as fishing, hiking, horseback riding, hunting and swimming. Our beautiful mountainous location provides excellent opportunity for backpacking, camping and hiking.
Every teen begins by building a relationship with an adult mentor. Challenging activities and daily chores foster a solid work ethic and numerous other attractive character qualities. Then, framed by a relationship with a mentor, the adolescent can tackle the destructive choices that had held him or her back. We also offer individual and group counseling to bring change in attitudes and behaviors.
Students at New Horizons Boys Ranch are provided a fully accredited school that also consists of independent study courses. All credits earned transfer easily to any other school. The self-paced quality 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 successful education, and we communicate this in our classroom. Additionally, vocational training topics include automotive, construction, culinary, life skills, and ranching.
Genuine family restoration happens only with the total commitment of parents. We request 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 their children using tools such as letter writing, which promotes communication and relationship building 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, therapy, hard work and plenty of play, we stand by values and character traits that will benefit your child all of his or her life. Please consider looking beyond Van Nuys, California to see how our caring program can lead to restoration in your family.
