Welcome and Good News!

Day Programs including Transportation Now Available in Hereford

Conceived as a community of hope, Echoing Hope Ranch will be a place where teens and adults with autism can be productive in a peaceful, supportive environment. Our beautiful ranch is now providing residential and day program services near the San Pedro River.

Echoing Hope Ranch will create an agricultural community where teens and adults with autism have the opportunity to participate in ranching and farming activities while contributing to adjoining community. The ranch will be built with alternative energy conscious techniques such as solar and/or wind power, rainwater harvesting and production of our own food in an effort to live a healthier lifestyle and be as self-sufficient as possible. Echoing Hope Ranch is conceived not as an island that isolates the disabled community but as a bridge to the community. Ranchers will find opportunities to participate in the surrounding community and will invite community members to help with the ranching and farming activities. The people living and working at the ranch will have the benefit of fewer large daily transitions which can be difficult for people with autism, and will live a productive natural lifestyle with healthy fresh food that they have grown.

In addition to adults living at the ranch, teens can attend after-school programs and summer camps to get the ranch experience. Adults not living at the ranch and teens can get a taste of ranch life by staying for a couple of days in our respite home. Parents have access to a guest house so they can also take a few days to experience the ranch or visit nearby attractions knowing their loved one will be safe and productive in their time at Echoing Hope Ranch.
