Safety of a home. Love of a family. Hope of a future.

Our Story
Goshen Valley is committed to creating environments of safety, love and stability for youth in foster care. With the ongoing need of foster families in Georgia, Goshen Valley meets that need with a family-based model of care for children, youth and young adults. We partner with leaders in the community to help shape the lives of the youth we serve.

The Goshen Valley Foundation was established in 1998 after God moved on the hearts of the Blend family to donate their ranch property as a way to care for foster children. Through the leadership of founder John Blend, in 2001 the Goshen Valley Boys Ranch was created to care for young men in foster care. Over the past 16 years Goshen Valley has expanded and now has three programs, Goshen Valley Boys Ranch, Goshen New Beginnings and Goshen Homes. Each program has a unique focus and ministry to foster children in Georgia.

Our Vision

The Goshen Valley Foundation will be the leading provider of trauma-responsive, faith-based services for children, youth and families predicated upon best and most promising practices.
