We are excited to announce that we have officially expanded and added a new program location in Brant County, Ontario. The 7R’s Ranch, named after our core program model, is a beautiful place of restoration. This pandemic has magnified all the challenges facing the youth and we want to build resources that will engage and empower the youth to emerge from this season stronger than before. The 25-acre property allows for multiple program areas to serve youth at the same time ensuring ample room for physical distancing.
It has always been the dream for Liberty For Youth to help youth realize that they can grow and flourish beyond their imagination. When the pandemic caused a full shutdown back in the spring, we knew the negative effect this would have on our youth. We realized the urgency to provide a facility where youth could still have access to programming while following physical distancing and other prevention protocols. The plan to acquire a new facility that was more prorgram ready was expedited. This allows for multiple program spaces, outdoor use year-round, and farm experiences beyond the inner-city lifestyle.
We now begin the exciting journey to develop the 7R’s Ranch to full potential. Our first step was to acquire animals. The 7Rs Ranch has acquired:
The "Liberty" Llama - Napoleon
Alpacas - Quinte, George, and Daisy
Quarter Horses - Tatiana, Ima, and Leo
Ponies - Duchess and Lady
Barn Cats - Maven, Mama, Zoey, and Izzy and kittens
