Letter From the Director

Dear Friends,

Some of the most courageous people I have ever met are our families struggling to find answers and willing to do whatever they can to fight for their family.  One of the most common things I hear from guardians is that they feel guilty for placing their child at the Ranch, I often hear, “Why can’t we do this on our own?” Courage is defined by those who fight to overcome even when it’s hard, it’s scary, and when it would be easy to quit.  It takes courage to entrust others to help you when you feel the most vulnerable.  I admire the fact that our families desire better for their family and trust that God has lead them to MSR to work together and heal from the inside out.  “But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength.  They will soar high on wings like Eagles.”  Isaiah 40:30 NLT

We take great pride in working with children and their families.  We provide a team support system that encourages growth both for the child and his or her family.   We have helped to reunite 12 families in the last eight years!  It’s not always about reunification, some of our families continue to work hand-in-hand with us to create a solid life path and loving relationships that will last a lifetime.

I wish you could all be there to witness a family’s evolution through the difficulty, how they overcome together and end up being stronger than ever!  It’s their faith and strength as a family that will see them through the hard times instead of the hard times seeing them through life.

Thank you for helping us provide a support system for families who deserve to heal, overcome, and thrive.  You are the other members on our team, making that amazing difference every day!  God bless you for your love, prayers and support! 

Grateful for God and You,
Tammy Depperschmidt
