When I heard that the theme for this year's Giving Hearts Day was "Count Me," it resonated loudly! Isn't that what we all want? To know we are seen. To know we are valued. To know we "count."
That is why all of us at Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch hold ourselves to a standard of the true presence. The children we serve through our residential and therapeutic programs, and in our schools, are often society's "unseen." They have been abused, neglected, traumatized, labeled, and misunderstood. At the Ranch, we are present to them, with exceptional, practiced, compassionate expertise. We see them, walk with them, and count them.
We are also counting on you to see them. Please, for the children at Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch, raise your hand today and say "Count Me" with your support.
Because all of us deserve to be counted.
In His love,
Joy Ryan, President/CEO
Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch
