Peppers Ranch Foster Care Community seeks to "break the cycle" of child abuse and neglect through loving homes, counseling, and growth-oriented activities. By creating a network of caring foster parents and adult mentors on whom children can depend, Peppers Ranch is committed to providing a safe and secure environment where physical and emotional wounds can heal.
The ultimate goal of Peppers Ranch's Foster Care Community is to become home to as many of Oklahoma's abused and neglected children as possible. These children, through no fault of their own, have been victimized by the very people who were supposed to love and protect them. By providing the necessary resources and services to foster parents, we sustain a commitment to the children in their care. And, our safe and nurturing community will inspire and equip each child to break the cycle, reach their full potential, and become productive citizens of society.
The United States spends $292 million dollars each day as a direct or indirect result of the abuse and neglect our nation's children endure. Over 13,000 Oklahoma children are in the care of our state on any given day. Less than 50% leaving the system ever finish high school and 42% are homeless for at least one night within twelve months of exiting foster care. Each and every day, Peppers Ranch is about changing lives. We hope you agree...we simply can't afford to not invest in these young lives!
