Nestled in a secluded valley, surrounded by mountains and bordered by a scenic river in southern Idaho, this 169-acre facility is the perfect environment for healing. The core building, housing the kitchen and dining room, is flanked by the girls' and boys' residence halls. Bedrooms in the halls accommodate up to three young people and each room has its own bathroom. Completing the campus are a school, gymnasium, wood shop, and chapel.
The youth ranch is a licensed and accredited facility which houses up to 36 residents at a time, ages 12 to 17 (must be placed prior to their 17th birthday). The ranch staff is comprised of 40 dedicated staff members, including a core of professional counselors. Over 1,000 teens have completed the Project Patch program and are living testaments to the program's effectiveness.
Most teens are in the program for 14 months, gaining the skills and healing necessary for completing the program. During this time, family visits take place at various times and parents are encouraged to attend parent weekends, each one a time to learn new skills as a family.
Project Patch accepts children regardless of creed, religion, gender, or race. Patch is a faith-based ministry that focuses on teaching teenagers their worth and value in the eyes of their Creator. While we are unable to accommodate individual religious practices other than those provided, all are respected.
