We Give Thanks….

In this blessed season of Thanksgiving, we extend gratitude to all those who have made our historic progress possible:
Our Purchase of the Youth Ranch Property: We’re thankful for all donors’ contributions, especially the generous $175,000 gift from NYC’s financial-technology giant Ideanomics, which helped complete the down payment on our 62-acre Youth Ranch property — including three scenic lakes, rolling woodlands and three structures being repurposed for ISYR uses!
Our New K-9 Academy Tenant & Lease: We’re grateful to have the Indiana Department of Homeland Security as our new long-term tenant of the remodeled on-site veterinary clinic. IDHS will provide ISYR a reliable revenue stream and expand Youth Ranch experiences to include K-9 and drone training!
Our Needed Demolition & Excavation: Donated equipment from McAllister Caterpillar, leaders and inmate workers from the Indiana Department of Corrections made it possible for us to demolish four unsafe, unwanted buildings! Knust Excavating of Brazil, Ind., is now readying the areas for our youth structures and recreation areas!
Our Peace Chapel & Cabin Groundbreakings: Through the generosity of five Indiana families and organizations, we’ve now broken ground on an inter-denominational peace chapel and four youth cabins!
How can we keep our steady momentum going? Clearly, tax-deductible gifts this season will assure more bold progress in early 2020. Support of our annual fundraisers – including our John Jones Auto Group Truck Raffle, Sheriffs’ Shotgun Shoot and All-American Ribfest – will help us move more quickly toward our youth day visits, overnights, weekend retreats… and eventually weeklong leadership academies!
Thankfully, our Youth Ranch begins with leaders like YOU!
