Progress Ranch

for boys 6-15

In operation since 1976, Progress Ranch is a home for boys between the ages of 6 and 15. Our facility has six beds. We are located in a residential neighborhood in the city of Davis, and boys are eligible to attend Davis public schools.


We strive for the following outcomes for our boys:

Health and well-being
Confidence and social skills
An optimistic and hopeful outlook
A capacity for meaningful relationships.

We work to achieve these outcomes by

providing a nurturing home environment,
being involved in a supportive community,
emphasizing education,
offering individual and family therapy.

We live in a wonderful community! The following folks delivered big time
in making it a wonderful holiday season for the boys.
