Emergency Shelter for Foster Youth

High Sky has two facilities that serve as emergency shelters for children 0 to 18 for up to 90 days. During this time, placements with relatives or eager foster homes are sought out.  Children placed in the emergency shelter often arrive with only the clothes on their backs. High Sky Children’s Ranch staff embraces each child with care and provides a home-like environment during their stay. In addition to therapeutic services, the children are provided with family style meals, clothing, school supplies, birthday celebrations, a fun-filled summer, and a magical Christmas experience to remember. Many of the children still speak of their trips to Sea World, Fiesta Texas, and Great Wolf Lodge. The staff keep the children busy during their short stay with us, always striving to help the children feel comfortable and loved while creating positive memories.
