In operation since 1976, Progress Ranch promotes the hope, health, and well-being of boys between the ages of 6 and 12 by helping them develop the self-confidence, competence, and positive feelings that result from living in a nurturing setting within a supportive community.
Our facility has six beds. We are located in a residential neighborhood in the city of Davis, and boys are eligible to attend Davis public schools. Our Executive Director, Wendi Counta, a long-time Davis resident, has over twenty years of experience working with children. She was the Residential Director at Families First for the past fifteen years. Her educational background is in Human Services management.
The Board of Directors is comprised of local residents who recognize the need for caring, community-based programs for children at risk. They meet monthly in Davis. A packet of material to describe board service opportunities is available upon request.
