Chase's Story

Picture a 7-year-old boy. He has a younger sister. This child grew up watching his parents physically assault each other over anything from bills, to the despair of poverty, to lack of food. The father is addicted to drugs and very abusive to his mom and two children. His mom is angry and is also addicted to drugs. She has no ability to provide for her children. This young boy’s dad goes to jail, and the young boy and his sister go to live with his mom’s parents.

Still amidst turmoil, the family moved around. The young boy’s mother eventually left her two children to live with a friend. He secretly worried about who would take care of him.

A step-grandmother took in the boy and his sister. For 2 years, things seemed stable, until the step-grandmother’s 18-year-old stepson moved into the home with then. Terrible things happened because of this, and the children’s lives were altered forever. The step-grandmother did what she could and moved out with the two young children. They were homeless and spent time in a women’s shelter before the grandmother realized that she could not care for the children any longer.

That morning, they were dropped off at a Department of Family and Children Services office. They cried, not wanting to leave her, but she had no choice. This young boy and his sister were separated and, over the next several years, were moved around to 16 different foster families.

Due to the struggle and significant trauma that he faced this young boy, now a young man, grew deeply hurt. He disrupted his foster home placements until he was 14. His case worker, wanting to see some significant change, took him to a group home: Goshen Valley. This was when his healing began.

This young boy, Chase, is now 21-years-old. He has lived at Goshen Valley since he was 14. Through the safety and stability, love and purpose he received, Chase graduated high school in 2011 and is a sophomore at Reinhardt University. He is in foster care leadership positions and helps other young men to remain strong and find their purpose while in foster care. Chase is still connected to his family, especially his sister, but has found his identity is truly found in his faith and triumphs.

Greg's Story


Greg came to live at Goshen Valley when he was 16. Greg was from Atlanta and had no desire to live in the country on a ranch with horses and cows. Still, when Greg turned 16, he had run out of options. After multiple placements and high schools, it was clear that Greg needed a new start.

After coming to Goshen Valley, Greg slowly turned a corner. After a year of continuing to struggle in school and in life, he finally made a commitment to graduate high school. Greg was extremely bright but, in his 3rd year of high school, only had enough credits to be considered a freshman. Greg promised himself that if he was given the opportunity to work ahead, he could finish 2 ½ years of high school in 9 months.

Greg graduated high school in December 2012. He never worked so hard in his life, but he truly believed that he could do it.

Below is Greg’s personal testimony of his life and decisions that led him to where he is today.

Redeemer Day 2012

On Saturday April 28, 2012 over 100 members from Redeemer Lutheran Church in Atlanta, GA descended on The Ranch for a day of service and fellowship.

Redeemer has been in the fabric of Goshen Valley since the beginning. As the founding church of John & Connie Blend, the people at Redeemer began giving direction and innovation 10 years before GVBR opened its doors. Many of these key people are on the Board of Advisors today. Redeemer continues to be devoted in their financial support, prayer support and labors of love!

On Saturday GVBR got a landscaping makeover, a newly planted garden, painted fence posts and an incredible amount of other blessings. Thank you to Chick-Fil-A of Canton who provided breakfast and Bayou Barq for catering lunch! Thank you also to Fields Chapel UMC members who transformed the administration office with mops and a hose! The Ranch is always encouraged because of the Spirit brought by those who serve.
