We have doubled in size every year since 2010 and we are now ready to scale. We have the team, the program clients, the proven curriculum, and a unique, highly effective approach to change the lives of those that need it most. In 2016 we impacted the lives of 730 at risk youth.
We are beginning 2017 with a bright new future ahead, with a facility that offers the possibility of serving 5 times as many kids and tripling our wolf pack. Due to the generosity of an angel supporter and many big-hearted donors, we purchased the perfect new ranch in 2015 —165 beautiful acres in the mountains of Acton, California, an hour North of Los Angeles. There is a year-round stream, two working wells and endless potential to develop a wilderness educational, retreat, and therapeutic center that will inspire all who visit to learn how to live sustainably with the land, the animals and each other.
With great effort, we managed to build an brand new wolf compound and the pack moved to their forever home in May 2016. For those of you that were there it was an unforgettable day! … AND when the land, the wolves, and the humans come together … well, only amazing things can happen!
On the new ranch, we envision expanding our current services to include overnight and weekly stays, which will allow for more in-depth work. We plan on adding:
- A residential facility for youth transitioning into independent living
- A retreat center where youth and families from all walks of life can find healing and hope,
- Bunk houses for Summer and weekend camps,
- Gathering and creative rooms,
- A mess hall where participants can eat fresh and nutritious foods
- Outdoor teaching and gathering areas
- Two more state-f-the-art wolf compounds … in addition to the existing one

With boundless gratitude,
