Chestnut Mountain Ranch provides a Christ-centered school and home for boys in crisis and in need of hope and healing. Partnering with their families, we pursue family restoration and reunification.

Our educational program is geared to help children develop spiritually, intellectually, physically, emotionally, and socially.

What we do

Relationships

We help our boys develop relationally through counseling, our in-residence program, school and community engagement, and interacting with the public at our Community Store and Quick Lube.

Education

With small classes and individual attention, our boys are able to get back on track in their education and prepare for meaningful and productive futures.
