A Decade of Serving the fatherless

Blue Sky Ranch is a nonprofit organization. When it was established in 2014, it was a dream and passion in our hearts. We believed God was calling us to the mission field of fatherless young men. After starting with 6 boys and 2 mentors, the organization has grown to encompass 31 boys and 16 mentors.

Our Mission

Blue Sky Ranch is a Christ-centered organization that engages and empowers fatherless young men through authentic relationships, life skills, equine assisted learning, and mentorship. We aim to create a safe environment of freedom, hope, and healing where young men at risk can develop essential life skills and find purpose and direction for their futures.

We promote various opportunities for young men to develop personal growth, character building, and strong moral values. BSR is committed to guiding and supporting these young men as they navigate through the challenges of adolescence and transition into adulthood, equipping them with the tools and resources they need to succeed in all areas of life and become assets to their families, churches, and communities.

BSR Core Values


We value honesty and strive to maintain a strong moral character in everything we do.


We strive to provide unwavering support and guidance to those we serve. This is the key to our success.


Our motto is “Safety First” in everything we do, as we prioritize the well-being and protection of all individuals.


We hold ourselves to the highest standard, continuously striving for improvement and ensuring the best possible outcomes for those under our care and within our organization.


By embracing authenticity, we strive to be honest, transparent, and always act with integrity. We believe authenticity is essential for building solid foundations and nurturing positive relationships in both personal and professional settings.

“Being a teacher, and my wife and I doing youth ministry together, we see first hand the number of young men that need a Christian father figure in their lives. We are so happy to aide in this ministry that provides that Christ-centered mentorship so many of our youth are sadly missing out on. We believe in the BSR staff and their commitment to empowering these young men to not only become great members of society but more importantly followers of Christ.”
