High Sky Children’s Ranch, Inc. opened its doors in 1963 under the direction of a concerned citizen, Joan Nobles, as a home for girls who had no place to go. In 1985, we changed our license to accept both boys and girls, enabling us to keep sibling groups together. High Sky was re-licensed yet again in 1987 as a treatment facility to work with more traumatized, higher-level of care children and later as a Therapeutic Foster Care. The programs provide a structure with life skills as well as therapeutic services.
Our programs designed to help troubled children and families are: Therapeutic Foster Care, Community Foster Care, Stay Together Runaway Prevention, PAL (Preparation for Adult Living) and LIFE (Living Independently, Financially and Emotionally), and Eagles and Abell-Hanger Emergency Shelters.
What others say about us
“Honestly, High Sky is more than just a foster home. To me, it’s a family.”
“High Sky gave me structure and the assurance that there was good even in this crazy part of my life.”
“They treated me like family.”
“I remember being really desperate when I first called the Stay Together Program. But, when I started working with the program, I saw the light at the end of the tunnel. I had hope again.”
“I’ve always enjoyed doing community service through different non-profits and I’ve always enjoyed and believed in the ones I worked with, but nothing has affected me like High Sky.”
We’re constantly making our facilities better and safer.
