Manaolana Ranch for Youth and Their Families exists to Mentor the child, Teach values that promote lifelong success, Build Hope for families, and Inspire Faith.
STATEMENT OF FAITH
Manaolana Ranch for Youth and Their Families is a faith-based organization. Though the ranch is not associated with any particular denomination, the basis of our belief rises from the same Christian values that our nation was built upon. The Founders, Board of Directors and staff of Manaolana Ranch for Youth and Their Families, believe that Jesus Christ is the one true Son of God, Savior, and Redeemer of the world. We believe the Bible to be the Word of God. It is our greatest desire to serve God by the demonstration of our faith through our actions and works. Faith on the ranch is demonstrated through being a "living example" to those we work with and serve. It is our highest honor to serve children and families of all backgrounds with the same loving grace that has so freely been given to us. As a result of this foundation, all of our programs and training are catered to accordingly.
Manaolana Ranch for Youth and Their Families is a program in the community that focuses on providing a safe mentoring relationship for youth and their families. We foster an environment that is nurturing, provides hope, healing, and empowerment. Each session provides a one on one experience with a mentor and includes a variety of activities with horses, Hawaiian values and culture, working with the ‘Āina, arts and crafts, games, and ranch chores. Session leaders have a living testimony and relationship with Jesus Christ and a sincere willingness to invest in youth. Each session is individually catered to the child to meet their specific needs. Through hands-on experiences, youth between the ages of 4 and 18, are taught values of hope, family, trust, and faith all free of charge. Although our primary focus is to help disadvantaged children our program is available for any child. We ask that each youth in the program have the desire to be on the ranch and participate and together we hope to gain lasting memories and experience miracles!
