How Can You Help?

Hope Lives Youth Ranch is a registered 501 (c) 3 organization. All donations are tax-deductible. 


Sponsor a Horse    -     $30/month

Our dedicated team of four-legged partners is the backbone of our program! Without them, Hope Lives Rescue Ranch would not exist, so we want to make sure they are receiving the quality care they deserve. When you sponsor a horse your name will be displayed on their stall-front on a wooden red heart for the duration of your sponsorship. 


Your sponsorship provides:

           Hours of one on one sessions between a leader, horse, and ranch visitor

           Hay and grain

           Vitamins and supplements as needed

           Monthly hoof care

           Annual vaccines and veterinary care      


Sponsoring a horse is a twelve-month commitment of $30 per month. Please contact us to set up your sponsorship!



Join our Giving Team

Members of our giving team commit to a monthly donation for 12 months. Many of our Giving Team members are simply giving $5 a month. We only need 120 people to give this amount monthly to reach our funding goals for the year! All Giving Team members receive a quarterly newsletter with updates on how the horses and kids are doing and plans for the future. Contact us to join.
