Morning Star Boys’ Ranch has a wide impact on our community; still, our influence is limited by the number of beds the residential program has.
Morning Star Boys’ Ranch Murphy House has been at full capacity this year, and the waitlist for residency continues to grow. Our community needs a therapeutic, healing, nurturing space for children who have experienced abuse and neglect. The residents’ average age is 9.6 years and the average stay at the Ranch is 10.8 months. Every bed is vitally necessary to ensure that each boy who needs it gets care and healing so they can have a successful foster placement or reunification with family.
H.O.P.E. is about expanding the Murphy House Therapeutic Residential Program in size and quality to address this tremendous need.
