Howdy! It has been a very busy month so far at Charis Youth Ranch. We have been industrious little bees planning for our summer programs, getting some new fencing put up, running hotwire, adjusting our feed on the coldest days, getting hay, and planning our next round of fundraisers.
We are so thankful for our horses, and we look forward to all the kids that they will serve this summer. Right now we are focused on the practical day to day chores that keep 18 horses in the best shape over winter. Current needs are to purchase our February hay supply (grass and alfalfa small bales), refill our grain bin with senior grain, and get a plumbing issue resolved. We work hard to keep our horses well fed and taken care of, and you can help us meet their needs by participating in our Month of Love this February!!

Thank you for your support. Please take a look at our site, explore who we are and what we do. These horses make a difference, their lives matter. With your help we are faithful to care for these animals because that is our responsibility as a rescue, and because we want to give the best to serve the kiddos that walk up our driveway. If you are reading this and feel moved to support us you can click on the support our cause tab above. We need financial partners to sow into what we do, believe me the harvest of love and healing that we see in kids and horses year after year is worth the sacrifice. We eagerly look forward to all this year will hold, we look back with grateful hearts at the years past, and we are enjoying this current moment of taking care of our four footed friends. Thank you for partnering with us!!

We are still in need of a 4 wheeler or 4 wheel drive truck, we had a wonderful utility cart donated but could use something reliable in the snow to pull it with or a truck to throw hay from. We are a 501c3, and we can write a tax donation receipt for anyone willing to donate!! If you know of a 4 wheeler or older (running) 4 wheel drive truck please let us know!! Thank you!!
Thank you to each of our sponsors who have either donated time, money or materials to our cause. We truly appreciate each and every one of you!
