Bit of Faith Ranch
At Bit of Faith Ranch, we want to provide individuals impacted by autism or related disabilities with a community they can call their own.
We presume competence on behalf of every participant and volunteer.
Part of our mission is to acknowledge each individual’s ability to express themselves and enjoy the activities that the Barn offers, like riding, grooming, physical exercise and more.
We provide space for participants and caregivers alike to catch their breath and enjoy nature as a healing balm for their soul.

Port in the Storm
Port in the Storm is a “port in the storm of life” for youth who have fallen through the cracks. They say that the opposite of love is not hate, but indifference. No one cared if they came home and what was going on at home was often scarier than the streets. Now they are on the streets and more alone than ever.
They are no longer kids. They are hurt. They are tough. They are angry. They are lost. This is the last chance to help them before they spiral down into the pit of chronic homelessness, mental illness or suicide. Port in the Storm is a safe place off the streets for homeless/unaccompanied youth in crisis. Caring adults provide stability, hope and a path to successful future through Positive Youth Development programming.
