Founded by the Sheriffs of Arkansas in 1976, the Arkansas Sheriffs' Youth Ranch provides hope and healing for children, who through no fault of their own, need a place to call home. Our mission is to address, remedy and prevent child abuse and neglect by creating safe, healthy homes for children. We provide safe, healthy, long term homes for boys and girls from every corner of the state. But the Ranch offers much more than a warm bed and three meals a day. Our transformative family-style foster care program offers children a second chance at being a kid and a home where a child can grow into a loving, caring and responsible young man or woman. At the ASYR, we pour as many good things into our Ranchers' lives as we can for as long as they're here. We give them every opportunity to be loved and thrive. Each child receives proper health care, educational opportunities, and most importantly, a safe and stable home environment cared for by professional and loving house parents.
