walking togetherIn our communities there are many children who do not have a safe place to go when things become difficult in their lives.  They have no trusting adult of family member to turn to and are often easily victimized.

At James Ranch, children in need of help can find a safe environment where qualified and caring adults can offer a helping hand.

We provide temporary shelter care services and assistance in helping youngsters find out what is required to help make a difference in their lives.

Referrals:  Please view our criteria for placement in the James Ranch Youth Shelter.

  • We understand that many children being referred for temporary shelter lack the documented history required for children being referred to our therapeutic group home.
  • Because of the unique program structure at Assurance Home, children in the shelter program and the therapeutic group home program are combined into one facility.
  • It is often considered appropriate for children to be referred to the James Ranch Youth Shelter while they await placement in the therapeutic group home.
