What does the Restoration Ranch, Texas™ Program offer Women in Crisis?
Holistic care guided by Christian principles…
Restoration Ranch Texas™ offers a faith-based, interdenominational facility for women (ages 18-65), with possible life-controlling issues from past addiction, abuse, abandonment, incarceration, the sex trade, or aging-out of the foster care system.
Restoration Ranch Texas™ will be an 18-24 month long-term residential program consisting of three-stages for its female students situated in a peaceful ranch setting in the greater Austin, Texas area. Each recipient of care will be assessed individually. All data and assessments will translate to a customized plan of care monitored and guided by trained professionals.
