About Parks Youth Ranch

OUR MISSION

To provide emergency shelter, counseling and life changing services to abused and neglected youth.

Our Story

Parks Youth Ranch opened their doors in 2011 to provide emergency shelter, counseling, and life changing services to abused and neglected youth ages 7-17. The ranch sits on eight acres of land and has two fully stocked fishing ponds — providing children in crisis the therapeutic effects of nature and the comforting aesthetics of a family-style ranch home. Located on the ranch property are three facilities: the Fred and Mabel R. Parks Emergency Shelter, the George Counseling Center, and the Fort Bend Junior Service League Recreation Center. The primary objectives of both the shelter and counseling center programs are to provide an in-depth assessment of the child’s needs — as a result of recent trauma, neglect or abuse — and to develop a long-term plan of action for stability and positive life change.

OUR VISION STATEMENT

Through strong and effective community partnerships with a sustainable financial base, the youth receiving treatment at the Fred and Mabel R. Parks Youth Ranch will be empowered with coping skills, hope and achievable goals and no longer at risk of being homeless.
