The flagship program of the Goshen Valley Foundation

Goshen Valley Boys Ranch is located on 160 acres in the scenic Salacoa Valley of Waleska, Georgia. Today the Ranch houses 46 young men in foster care age 8-18. All boys participate in therapeutic counseling, public school education, and our comprehensive recreation program, all while living in a unique, family-based home.

Our goal is for every young man to know the security of a home, the love of a family, and the hope of a future; in short, Peace and Purpose.

We believe that great transformation takes place in the context of loving relationships, and this is why we take such pride in our family-based model of care. All six homes on the Ranch have full-time house parents that care for the boys as if they are their own. In all aspects, from a midnight fright to the joy of Christmas morning, we create environments that feel as much like a family home as possible.

Our young men will be reunited with their biological families, adopted into a new family, or be provided the skills and resources necessary for living independently in the community as young adults.
