Flying H Youth Ranch

Organization Description: 

Since 1962 the Flying H Youth Ranch has existed for the purpose of working with troubled teens and boys and their families. We are motivated by two primary goals: to bring glory to God by reaching families through Jesus Christ, and to stimulate the faith of believers by communicating Gods faithfulness to us.

Our residents come to us, between the ages of 14 and 17, from different backgrounds, for a variety of reasons. The required minimum stay is one year. Each is unable, at the time of entry, to function well in his own family; but he must be willing to acknowledge a need for change. We strive to treat the whole person and train him for productive adulthood.

The scope of our program attempts to address many of the following current social problems: rebellion to authority, divorced family issues, single parent homes, adoptive families, addictive behaviors, and poor academic achievement.

Operating year-round, the goals of the Flying H Ranch are to address these issues while helping young men and their families discover identity, purpose and worth. The dimensions of the treatment provided are: emotional, social, spiritual, vocational, educational, and recreational.

We believe that all relationships in each of these areas are affected and enhanced by discovering our deepest meaning and purpose in relationship with Jesus Christ. It is this foundation which will carry young men through all of lifes struggles and successes.

Located in the beautiful foothills of Mount Rainier in Washington State, the Flying H Ranch occupies over 400 acres of ranch land. The primary facility houses 24 residents; and the property includes a school, maintenance building, shop, livestock barns, and staff housing.

As a working ranch, evidences of crop farming, livestock management, and ongoing construction can be seen throughout the property.

Directions: to reach the Flying H Youth Ranch drive west from the town of Naches on State Route 410, approximately 12 miles.

Mission Statement: 

The Flying H Youth Ranch exists to teach struggling boys and their families a Biblical understanding of life, including every persons need for salvation which comes through Jesus Christ.

For God has not destined us for wrath, but for obtaining salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Thessalonians 5:9

Organizational Statement of Faith: 

We believe:

That the entire Bible, both the old and the new testaments, is verbally inspired by God as set down in the original languages.
In one God, eternal, existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
That Jesus Christ was conceived by the Holy Spirit, was born of the Virgin Mary, and is truly God and truly man.
That the blood of Jesus Christ alone can cleanse from sin; according to the Scriptures.
In the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, in His ascension into heaven, and His present intercessory life for us.
In the bodily resurrection of the dead; the just, to life eternal with God and the unjust, to eternal punishment.
That all who receive the Lord Jesus Christ as their personal Savior by faith in His atoning work on Calvary, are immediately born again and are baptized by the Holy Spirit into the body of Christ, and are sealed unto the day of redemption.
In the personal, pre-millennial, imminent return of the Lord Jesus Christ for the redeemed.
