At Cal Farley’s Boys Ranch, Christmas and Santa, come a little early.
Many of our youth go home over the Christmas break, which coincides with the school’s. To honor the important relationships being built at Boys Ranch, and provide the joy and wonder that comes during Christmastime, each house celebrates this special time of year.
Celebrations include many traditional details. Lights sparkle from decorated trees. Santa comes to deliver presents to each child in our care. And, our young people and their houseparents gather to exchange gifts — enjoying the friendships and bonds that have been created.
While many of our youth go home, there are some that are unable to, depending on their circumstances. Thanks to the kindness of our donors, we celebrate with the young people who are still at Boys Ranch on Christmas Day — building memories, experiences and relationships that will help them grow into healthy, strong adults.
