Hello! Thank you for taking the time to visit our website and learn how Ranch Hope serves children and families throughout the State of New Jersey and Delaware Valley!
I am honored to represent the many houseparents, counselors, teachers, staff and volunteers of the Ranch Hope family as Executive Director of the ministry, founded by my father and mother in 1964. Since that time, Ranch Hope has continued to be a shelter of hope - changing the lives of area children few will help and fewer will assist.
My father has always defined the word "hope" as - "an expectation of success!" Ranch Hope is a ministry that "expects" success in all that we strive to do. We are continually motivated by the values taught to us by our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. By mentoring His ways to the children entrusted to us, we believe every child can learn. We believe every child can grow, and we believe every child can suceed.
After reviewing this website, I ask that you consider becoming a member of the Ranch Hope "family", either professionally, as a volunteer or through your financial support. Each of these memberships is vital to sustaining this ministry. Thank you for your interest and I hope to speak with you soon.
David L. Bailey, Jr.
Chief Executive Officer
