The Boys and Girls Ranches of Alabama
School, church and other public or private officials, including the Department of Human Resources, can make referrals. Once the decision is made to place a child in a Ranch, placement may depend on the space available at the time of the request. Selection is completely nondiscriminatory.
At a minimum, candidates for the Boys and Girls Ranches must meet the eligibility requirements stated below. Before acceptance into care at a Ranch, a family history will be taken, interviews compiled, and pertinent information gathered from local school officials, ministers, friends, etc.
Any Custodian may refer a child to live at the Ranches. If you would like to do this, please call us at 1-800-548-4256 and speak with one of our social workers. Our social workers will then contact the Ranch. All paperwork must be completed before a child may come to the Ranches.You can also contact us to request more information by completing the online form below.
Note: If you are a Department of Human Resources representative and if the child is accompanied by a current Comprehensive Family Assessment (CFA) please use the following form.
