Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch provides adolescent residential treatment in three North Dakota communities—Minot, Bismarck, and Fargo. While each location has a unique design and atmosphere, the goal of each is the same—to help at-risk children and their families succeed in the name of Christ.

Minot, ND 58703
Located several miles out of Minot, our main campus has multiple buildings where the children can safely live, learn, and heal. Residents live in one of five cottages that each provide a different type of treatment based on the age and the needs of the child. On the Minot campus, we also have a chapel, barn and riding arena, greenhouses, a Family Living Unit where families can stay when they visit their children, and a shop where the children can learn welding, carpentry, small engine repair, and a variety of other career and technical education skills.

The Fargo campus of Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch is a Psychiatric Residential Treatment Center, with space for 16 children. The Ranch-style buildings consist of one building with the children's living quarters, administrative offices, and outpatient counseling. The other building houses Dakota Memorial School, a dining center, and a chapel. Our Fargo Youth Home, a Qualified Residential Treatment Program, is located in a south Fargo neighborhood.
