for boys 6-12
In operation since 1976, Progress Ranch is a home for boys between the ages of 6 and 12. 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,
offering individual and family therapy.
Our Executive Director, Wendi Counta, a long-time Davis resident, has over twenty years of experience working with children. She was the Residential Director at Families First for the past fifteen years. Her educational background is in Human Services management.
The Board of Directors is comprised of local residents who recognize the need for caring, community-based programs for children at risk. They meet monthly in Davis. A packet of material to describe board service opportunities is available upon request.
