“I was fortunate to discover Candlelight Ranch when I was searching for internship opportunities while earning my MSW. Once I visited, and witnessed the changes that occurred through Candlelight’s unique outdoor/self-esteem programming opportunities, I was hooked!
I have spent over 15 years working with youth who encounter various barriers to their success and happiness – legal barriers, developmental barriers, social barriers, physical barriers, and intellectual barriers. It was an absolute pleasure to discover a place where all these barriers melt away in the warming light. Through horses, zip-lines, challenge courses, ChillVille, and a riparian wilderness, true change is fostered. This occurs all in a caring, inclusive and accepting environment. It is a blessing to be a part of the Candlelight family.”
