376 days after Heritage Ranch Christian Children’s Home welcomed its first residents, staff watched the campus fill with water. Thousands of people, locally and across the nation, have given their time, money, and prayers over the last 10 years to see Heritage Ranch open its door to children in crisis. On August 13, 2016, Louisiana experienced a 1,000 year flood. There was no named storm, no warning, and no time to prepare. As water quickly rose to five feet campus wide, staff contacted emergency services to begin the process of evacuation for our staff and residents. From there, we began to witness the community come together to provide for the needs of the Heritage Ranch family and staff. Heritage Ranch has experienced an outpouring of support from people near and far. Each and every donation, whether it be monetary, supplies or hard work, is aiding in the rebuilding and restoration of the Ranch campus. We are just beginning to comprehend the nature of the financial and organizational implications of the devastation. We are committed to bringing our boys back to the Ranch and resuming the program to reunify and restore their families. Restoration of the campus is not for the boys alone. It is for their families and for the many residents and families we will serve in the future. If you would like to join hands with us as we rebuild and restore Heritage Ranch, please consider making a donation today. To learn more about our program and the work we do, please scroll to the bottom of the page for a resident and family testimonial video.
