At the last Rotary meeting I attended the speaker was from Arkansas Sheriff's Youth Ranch. This awesome non-profit is a residential care facility (like a group home) for abandoned, abused and neglected children. The kids live in cottages in groups of 12 or less with two house parents. They are fed, cared for, go to public school and are allowed to stay in the care of the Ranch after they turn 18 so the organization can help them get through a tech school or college if they want or just to help them transition to total independence.
The organization and their residences sounds so great my husband and I are planning to go up for a tour of the facilities and are thinking of planning a small fund or supplies drive for them. (We haven't decided yet which but will let you know when we figure it out.)
In the meantime, if you or someone you know needs to book any travel plans, I just found out when I went over to the Ranch's web site, that if you book your travel plans there, some of the proceeds go to the Ranch. Pass the word!!
