Who We Are: Since 1961, The Buckeye Ranch has offered treatment and support services to countless children and families who struggle with emotional, behavioral, and mental health issues. Today, The Buckeye Ranch is more than a place: it’s a comprehensive network of skilled professionals, working as a team to provide children and families with the treatment, guidance and support they need to restore hope. The Buckeye Ranch touches the lives of thousands of children and families every day, offering an extensive continuum of care, with a commitment to restore hope and provide healing to children, to families and to communities.

Why We're Important: The Buckeye Ranch is a strength-based, family-centered, trauma-informed, culturally responsive organization. We provide a holistic treatment approach to all youth and families. We recognize that each child and family is unique; we use approaches that fit every member of the family. We recognize many children and families have survived traumatic experiences; we shape our approach to reflect that understanding.


How We Impact the Community: In Fiscal Year 2019, 4,943 children received services at The Buckeye Ranch. Considering that most of these children have families; parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, etc... It is safe to say The Buckeye Ranch touched the lives of tens of thousands of those in need of hope. Our promise is that we will never settle, that we can and must always do more to help our children. There is strength and hope in all of us. The Buckeye Ranch exemplifies the best in us and the best in our community. We achieve this standard by utilizing continuous quality improvement and best practices for our clients.
