CVYR Morning Ranch Men

CVYR ministries will be starting a new stewardship outreach program for all men and boys coming together for fellowship, discipleship and to serve God. “Morning Men”will be every fourth Saturday of a month throughout the calendar year at CVYR in Woodlake. We welcome all fathers and sons to sign up! If you don’t have a son or father that can attend, we still welcome you to sign up!

Meet Brave.

On the weekend of August 6, a new rescue horse arrived at Crown Valley Youth Ranch. Our founder and horse rescue leader, Scott, found this horse at an auction. He was malnutrition and his ribs are still seen on his sides. However, our goal is to fatten him up and make him feel at home.

He is a very docile horse that has already won the hearts of CVYR staff over. Thanks to your support, we have been able to bring home one more rescue, and hope to help even more in the future.

Brave is currently our second horse that was rescued from an auction.

change a child's life, donate today!

“Stop? Scale back? That sounds easy, until you have to tell that face-to-face to a child you have been mentoring for a year. A child that sees their time at the ranch, and you, as the highlight of their week, and they see you as a some kind of friend or superhero.

The truth is, all you are doing is praying God will soften their heart and give you the words. A child you see as your child. Could you imagine telling that child we are stopping? Me neither.”
