General Giving

Open Your Heart. Open A World of Possibility.

Please join us in making dreams come true for the 19 young adults with autism that call Erik’s Ranch & Retreats home where for as little as $5 per month, your gift will sustain meaningful employment and social opportunities for these deserving young adults. Concierge staff. Tour guides. Horse grooms. Facilities technicians. Bakers.

Because of your generosity, you are providing opportunities they have previously never experienced before Erik’s Ranch & Retreats. Opportunities the rest of us often take for granted: the chance for dignity, purpose, hope and more.

So please open your heart – and wallet – and feel good knowing you are providing the solution for as little as $5 a month. A solution where sheets, towels and lives are changed daily. Change with us in any amount today. Thank you!
