The name Blessing Ranch came from two sources. “Blessing” originated with the Old Testament concept of the blessing that seemed fitting to describe the intended impact of our ministry. “Ranch” was fitting to the 166 acre property in northern Colorado that served as our home from its origin in 1994 until 2014.
Absolutely! Everything you share with Blessing Ranch staff members remains confidential. It’s our honor to be a place outside of your everyday circle where you can be fully transparent, relax, and receive objective input. We will only communicate with someone outside of Blessing Ranch Ministries (e.g., a pastor or elder at your church, a local counselor you’ve worked with) if you legally authorize us to do so. We take that commitment seriously and care about honoring you and your story!
Please call us at 970-495-0920 to hear our rates for the program you are interested in. We do not accept insurance. If financial assistance is needed, we encourage you to: 1) seek financial support from the church or organization you are employed by or associated with if needed, 2) apply to Full Strength Network (https://fullstrength.org/) to receive financial assistance with counseling and coaching. Let Full Strength know you’d like to work with Blessing Ranch Ministries and they will connect you to us for services, or 3) reach out to Blessing Ranch to inquire about current scholarship opportunities.
