Many associate Fall with football. It is a time of (hopefully) cooler weather and Friday nights in the stands cheering for the local teams. This year we have fewer than normal participating on the team, but on any given weekend you can find our house parents with the whole cottage cheering on their cottage-mates and friends.

Thank you for allowing us to [...]

It is always amazing to watch a child face challenges and overcome them. Over the past school year, two of our girls at Texas Girls & Boys Ranch have done exactly that. Arriving both prepared and early to tutoring almost every day, these two girls made the most of the time they had with our tutoring volunteers. In spite of the deficits they had beginning the semester, they set their minds to completing each assignment to the best of their ability. And through the ebb and flow of tears and laughter, these girls never let the challenge of school [...]
