Why We Do It

Children clearing brush

Kids and teens are more anxious, depressed and struggling than ever. Before the age of 16, one in four children will experience at least one traumatic event in their life.

Without acknowledgement and support, this often leads to anger, addiction, depression, self abuse, difficulty and/or avoidance of relationships, interacting or trusting in others.

Bright Side Youth Ranch exists to impact the lives of the next generation. Hope is offered when we walk along side kids and teens who are hurting, speak love and truth to their hearts, and help them discover the Author of Hope. And when you give a child hope, you can transform their world.

You can make an impact by partnering with us in ministry.
