Cass County Electric Cooperative granted $3,000 to Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch for safety upgrades on its Fargo campus.
Children at the Ranch often come from unstable, even harmful environments, so one of the first priorities is to meet their basic needs for safety, security, and belonging. Children cannot heal if their needs are not met at this basic level. The safety of clients and staff is a top priority at the Ranch. Physical environments are as much a part of client healing as the medical care, education, and treatment they receive.
The grant from Cass County Electric will help create a safer living environment for the at-risk children served by Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch as they heal from the effects of trauma.
Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch is a Christ-centered residential treatment and educational 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, provides a personalized education for kids who have psychiatric, behavioral, and trauma issues.
