Healing and Hope For Our Kids

Idaho Youth Ranch is a non-profit 501(c)(3) agency that offers emergency shelter, residential care, youth and family therapy, job readiness training, adoption services,  and more for kids and their families. We also operate a network of thrift stores that help fund our youth programs and services.

Idaho Youth Ranch provides jobs for more than 400 Idahoans in communities across the state who staff our program operations, thrift stores, offices, and distribution centers.

68 Years of Changing Lives

Since 1953, Idaho Youth Ranch has been a beacon of hope for struggling kids and families.

Many know our name, but few understand the wide variety of ways we serve young people.



Behind the scenes at the Idaho Youth Ranch, there’s a remarkable executive staff and board of directors—backed by a team of more than 400 employees statewide—with the passion, vision, and expertise to lead the charge of changing Idaho for the better, one kid at a time.
