Love A Kid Club
Edgewood Children’s Ranch was founded to help at-risk children and families find hope. Your monthly support of our program allows us to succeed in this mission. By joining the “Love A Kid Club”, your support of $25 per month will help a child in Central Florida to have a second chance at a better future. Our goal is to reach 2,000 monthly “Love A Kid Club” supporters. This amount of support helps us to house, educate, and restore up to 60 kids’ lives per year in the Central Florida area. Your support in any amount will help us provide a loving environment where kids can learn to thrive and succeed in life and where families can find healing.
Raise The Roof
Raise the Roof is a fundraiser we are doing for Edgewood Children’s Ranch to replace the old roofs we have on 17 buildings. The current roofs are 17 years old with a lifespan of 15 years. We have been blessed that the roofs have lasted two years longer than expected, but it is now time to get them replaced. The total cost for us to replace our roofs is $255,000.00. We have some amazing supporters that have offered to pay for roof replacement costs for two of our 17 roofs. Other donors have committed to a monthly payment of $100 per month for the next 24 months to help pay for the roof replacement costs.
In Loving Memory
Over the years, Edgewood Children’s Ranch has been given thousands of donations in memory of a loved one. This has been an amazing blessing for us at the Ranch and a great way to honor the legacy of a loved one.

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.
