The Elmer & Kaya Berg Foundation granted $1,000 to Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch to update the security on its Fargo campus.
The Fargo campus of Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch serves children ages 12-18, who have experienced severe trauma, psychiatric issues, and/or developmental challenges.
Many kids at the Ranch come from unstable, even harmful environments. Their homes have never been a place of refuge, they have broken relationships with family, and have often experienced abuse, neglect, and/or trauma. The first step in healing for many of them is an environment that communicates safety and security. While at the Ranch, providing kids a safe and secure environment is the first priority.
Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch is a Christ-centered residential treatment and education center for children and their families. We help the most troubled, complicated, and amazing kids by providing best-in-class psychiatric therapy and trauma-informed care, where we look kids in the eye, walk with them, and help them become their best selves. In addition to Residential Treatment Facilities in Fargo, Bismarck, and Minot, the Ranch provides Outpatient Psychiatric and Psychological Services, and Spiritual Life Programs. Our on-campus school, Dakota Memorial School (DMS), provides a personalized education for kids who have psychiatric, behavioral, and trauma issues.
