News from the Ranch

Heritage Ranch is proud to announce a $50,000 grant from Entergy Riverbend. This grant will aid Heritage Ranch in its mission to strengthen children, their families and the community. Entergy awards grants to community-based projects that focus on enrichment and improvement of families. Entergy gives funding to programs that have direct impact on children educationally and emotionally to sustain health families.  River Bend Site Vice President Eric Olson presented a check in August  to Heritage Ranch Executive Director Vicki Ellis, Social Worker Portia Henderson, and Board of Advisor Member Conville Lemoine. 

Ellis said about the grant, “The generosity of Entergy River Bend allows us to positively affect the lives of youth and families across our community. The residential treatment program at Heritage Ranch provides the critical support and resources required for families, and their children, to overcome the crisis they are facing.  We continue to be blessed by an outpouring of support from companies, civic groups, churches, and individuals.”  

Please continue to lift the Ranch up in prayer as we move forward with serving youth and families. At this time we are in the process of accepting applications for our first 6 boys that will live on campus. We are also continuing  to search for our first houseparent couple. Thank you for praying with us and supporting the mission during this important time.

Vicki L. Ellis, Executive Director
