The mission of the Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches is to prevent juvenile delinquency and develop lawful, productive citizens through a broad range of family-centered services. This year, the Youth Ranches will serve over 5,000 boys and girls.
This charitable, non-profit corporation was founded by the Florida Sheriffs Association and operates the Youth Ranch in Safety Harbor in addition to three other residential child-care campuses and two Youth Camps. Additionally, it provides community-based services and family counseling to as many of Florida's neglected, troubled children as funds will permit. Voluntary contributions are the primary source of funding, especially thoughtful gifts made through special bequests in wills and trusts.
The Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches, Inc. is nationally accredited by the Council on Accreditation of Services for Families and Children, Inc. and the American Camp Association. For more information visit www.youthranches.org or contact your local Sheriff.
