In 1999, 160 acres north of Edmond and west of Guthrie were purchased and donated to Peppers Ranch with the goal of developing a long-term residential care facility providing quality, planned care for abused and neglected boys. In 2010, an additional 80 acres were donated to Peppers Ranch to bring the total size of the property to 240 acres.In January of 2008, Peppers Ranch began an extensive study on how we could help more children while maximizing the investment of our donor base. We thoroughly researched what other states were doing and found three foster care communities one each in Illinois, Washington and Texas. We spoke with all three on numerous occasions and visited the Texas site. While there, we learned how they operated and we analyzed the advantages compared to our existing group home model. Following this thorough evaluation in early 2009, Peppers Ranch changed its mission and became the first foster care community in Oklahoma.Currently, Peppers Ranch has 10 homes, an Equestrian Center, an Agricultural Center, a Calf Barn, a 9,000-square-foot Multi-Purpose Learning Center, an 8-acre stocked pond, baseball & soccer fields, playground and campsites.
It is the goal of Peppers Ranch to become home to as many children as possible. These children, through no fault of their own, have been victims of abuse and neglect. Our safe and nurturing community will inspire and equip children to reach their full potential.
