About Edgewood Children’s Ranch
The goal of Edgewood Children’s Ranch has been the same since 1966 - to help children struggling with behavior issues created by traumatic experiences in their past find hope and walk in the fullness of the Gospel of Christ.
Our residential program provides children in Central Florida with love, structure, behavior training, and a Christian education helping them to live a purposeful and transformed life.

“Before coming to Edgewood, I was not getting along with my family and I was suspended from school five times. I was mean and a bully in school. Since coming to Edgewood I have learned how to be nice to others and be kind. I have learned thoroughness and thoughtfulness. I have learned how to forgive others. I have learned to be a peacemaker instead of a troublemaker. I did not know how my life would change for the good at Edgewood Children’s Ranch. I am glad I am at Edgewood”
“Before Edgewood, I was having a hard time getting along with my sister and my mom. I was struggling to do well and school and my grades were bad. I've been at Edgewood for three years, and not only have I learned to respect authority and accept correction, but I've also learned that when I really focus and set my mind on something I can do it. My relationship with my family has improved and I am doing much better in school now. I am grateful for Edgewood Ranch."
