Florida's Charity for Florida's Children
The mission of the Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches is to prevent delinquency and develop strong, lawful, resilient and productive citizens who will make a positive contribution to our communities for years to come.
Founded in 1957 by the Florida Sheriffs Association, the Youth Ranches is a non-profit, residential child-care and family service organization primarily dependent on the generous gifts and support of our donor family. It is a nationally recognized, accredited agency with sites throughout the state of Florida. Our staff includes family case managers, counselors, therapists and cottage parents who serve over thousands of youth and their families each year. Programs include Residential Group Child Care, Family Services, and Camping Services aimed at meeting the diverse needs of Florida’s youth and families.
