Verendrye Electric Cooperative awarded $1,850 to Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch to upgrade the security on its Minot campus.
Children who come to the Ranch have experienced severe emotional, behavioral, and developmental challenges and come from diverse backgrounds, cultures, and religions. They work hard each day to overcome various diagnoses and issues related to trauma, abuse, and neglect. Because many kids at the Ranch come from unstable, even harmful environments, the first step in their healing is an environment that communicates safety and security.
The funds awarded by Verendrye Electric will allow the Ranch to continue to serve kids and families in a safe and secure environment.
Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch is a Christ-centered residential treatment and educational center for children. At the Minot facility, 198 employees work together to 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.
