  • Sense of  Belonging
  • Physical Stamina
  • Independence
  • Self Care
  • Appropriate Social Skills
  • Vocational Training
  • Academic Skills

Our Story

The Ranch Adult Day Habilitation Center first began as a vision that stemmed from working with adults with developmental disabilities.

 

We strongly desired a place and a culture where growth for each individual would begin with love and acceptance, and then blossom from there, regardless of their levels or abilities.

 

The name “The Ranch”  began as an idea of growing and developing good folks; it’s as simple as that!  It also stems from our love for the great outdoors and nature, which the Ranch incorporates into much of their daily activities and artistic expression.

 

After starting from scratch in the winter of 2013, The Ranch has received many flattering, positive, word-of-mouth recommendations throughout Warren County.  This honest reputation has fulfilled both individuals and their families as they join our family here at The Ranch.

 

The Ranch is always accepting donations in the form of monetary gifts, arts & craft supplies, furniture, or goods. We also welcome parents, grandparents, guardians, and friends into The Ranch for help with special projects and volunteer work.
