Our Spiritual Focus
At the center of the campus is our chapel. A place where we hold worship services and special events throughout the week. Except for the times when the Ranchers are home, services are held each Sunday at 3:00 pm.. Pastors and worship team members from Grace Orlando bring the message each week to Grace Edgewood. Our hope is for all our families to get plugged in to a local church.
Because we believe a relationship with Christ is the key component to the restoration and healing of families, our program is based on Biblical principles. Daily devotions in the cottages are an integral part of out ministry and our academic curriculum is based on these principles as well.
Edgewood Ranch has had an impact on so many lives in Central Florida since it started in 1966. Read some of the stories of a few of our past Ranchers.
The Ranch was my home for 2 years as a child. Looking back I can see the impact that the Ranch had on my life. I am forever grateful that the Lord provided this temporary home to save me from my environment. I am blessed to have the opportunity to come back and serve at the Ranch and ensure its mission is fulfilled.

Before Edgewood Ranch, I was running with the wrong crowd, I had a 1.5 GPA in school and I got into a lot of fights. During my two years at the Ranch, I earned the Rancher of the Year award and I graduated from High School with a 3.5 GPA. I am now looking toward a bright future because of the staff that poured into my life. Maybe I will be the next Ranch Director.
Edgewood has been one of the biggest factors in the success of my life. Before the Ranch, I was getting ready to go into the Juvenile detention center. I was fighting with my family and I was on an extremely bad path. I'm blessed to have a beautiful family, a company I have run for 20+ years and I am now the new Ranch Director. The Ranch has helped make this possible.
