Taking an individualized approach, since 1977.

Established in 1977, Hill Country Youth Ranch is a non-profit charitable corporation licensed by the Texas Department of Family/Protective Services to  provide a safe, loving, and life-enhancing Christian environment for children and young adults who have suffered severe trauma from abuse or neglect.

HCYR offers a broad continuum of services, including residential treatment for severely traumatized children, family care for those who have stabilized, transitional living for young adults, and life-long family-based support for alumni.
