This place called Hope Youth Ranch should have been shut down years ago.Kids have been being neglected for years. The Ranch has been hiring convicted felons and kids right out of high school to oversee these troubled youth.The Ranch does not and can not keep enough GOOD staff that cares about these TROUBLED kids. The Ranch should have hired people who had experience dealing with kids. A FACT,the doors to the Ranch should have been CLOSED.

Christian Acres should have been shut down years ago too. They employ drug addicts, alcoholics, and people who don't have enough experience working with kids. It looks like a garbage dump.
