Children and families, in the Central Oregon area, are at emotional, physical and psychological risk. CPYR seeks to address these risks through our equine based ministry model.

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Mentor the Child

Much of what the ranch does and is designed for is centered upon this goal. Under the mission of mentoring children we have placed our Session Program. The heart of our Session Program is to provide a safe place for children and families to experience hope, healing and encouragement. Individual sessions create an opportunity for a child to connect in a one-on-one setting with a leader and a horse. Each session is designed to be flexible, meeting each child’s distinctive needs while fostering intentional and long-term relationship. Through both the horse and the leaders at the ranch a child is able to learn structural values such as trust, personal worth and relational communication.

Population(s) Served

Currently, the ranch supports between twenty-five and thirty horses. Some of our horses came from wonderful homes, and others were rescued from severe neglect, starvation and/or abuse. Because the ranch was founded, in part, as an equine rescue and rehabilitation facility, we aquire our horses in nearly every imaginable way. Since CPYR has no law enforcement abilities, we cannot confiscate horses in need. Consequently, the ranch purchases nearly all the horses it rescues. Their freedom is not free. To date, the ranch has assisted in over three hundred horse rescue operations.

Population(s) Served

One facet of Crystal Peaks Youth Ranch is to provide aid and support to other organizations that are similar to the ranch program. Crystal Peaks holds two clinics every spring to teach others who are interested in developing a similar non-profit that pairs children with horses. The ranch also values building and maintaining relationships with these seedling organizations so that they may find assistance during their own development.

Population(s) Served

Crystal Peaks is dedicated to the endeavor of bringing families together. Throughout the year, there are numerous, fun events for parents and kids to partake in. In addition, the ranch typically hosts families one night every month in the barn. This time is dedicated to sharing a meal, worshipping, and hearing a teaching from one of our staff members. Through this time we hope to create an environment where families can come together and find both a respite and empowerment.
