Thank you for visiting our site!
We are a 501(c)(3) currently seeking capital funding to bring this facility to Colorado where the needs are great.
Actually, the need for an organization like Earth Tribe Ranch exist all around this beautiful country of ours so we intend to take this model to every willing city.
We welcome your passion, love and support in helping us to bring about change. We have reached a time in this society where people are recognizing that we can accomplish so much more in unity than we can in our separateness. We are all connected. We are all part of the Earth Tribe.

Homelessness is growing among young people at an alarming rate. In fact, we are seeing more homeless youth between the ages of 18 and 24 than ever before. We live in a society where our young people are expected to have it all figured out by the time they are 18. For many young people in the foster care system, they are simply on their own the day they have their 18th birthday. At that moment they lose any sense of a home or stability.and are once again without family or a home base.
Many of the young homeless population have been part of the judicial system in some way or another and are finding it difficult to integrate into an often unforgiving society. Some of these kids are lucky and they find a way to survive. Others have a more difficult time learning to navigate through life and find themselves unable to get employment because they have a record. Unable to get a job and to feed themselves and put a roof over their head eventually leads to survival behavior which is often criminal in nature. And so the cycle begins of repeating detrimental behavior. Sadly there are not many programs available that address their mental wellness AND give them sound life skills that could really make an impact on their ability to survive independently.
At Earth Tribe Ranch, we are passionate about helping to support as many young people as we are able and to create specialized and individual programs for them to begin the process of healing and integrating into society with confidence. Our programs address mental health wellness and encourage exploration and growth while offering education in real life skills. (See our Programs page for more information). There are virtually dozens of opportunities for those that come to the Ranch to engage their minds, hearts and spirits and to help move them toward living a healthy, balanced and joyful life.
Our passions run deep and with the number of domestic animals that are surrendered each year or simply homeless and in need of shelter, we are excited to be able to house and re-home as many animals as we are able. Our ability to support farm animals in need is an equally important part of our facility. While on the Ranch, our animal Residents are not only a valuable part of our wellness programs, but their lives and wellness are equally important to us and our mission.
We are equally concerned with the state of our environment so it is our desire to educate as many as possible about Earth stewardship and restoration. Because the Ranch will be built with the help of volunteers as well as some of the homeless community, there will be ongoing education in sustainable building, energy and living. Our community garden will support the Ranch while also educating in food security, nutrition, health and wellness.
It is our intention that all who come to the Ranch will leave knowing they have value and worth and with the ability to create a happy life for themselves. They will always be part of the Earth Tribe Ranch family and they will forever have a place to come to for the holidays.
We thank you for your support and interest in Earth Tribe Ranch.
