Golden Heart Ranch

Golden Heart Ranch (GHR) provides teens and young adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities opportunities to reach their fullest potential and enjoy meaningful, satisfying and joyful lives. We are an inclusive community where young adults with special needs learn, work and create lifelong friendships in a supportive and caring environment. GHR Social Living Club is a hands-on program that teaches both practical living and social skills with highly skilled coaches in the South Bay and Agoura Hills. Programs include cooking, track for exercise, cooking classes, supper clubs, challenger baseball, spring, summer and winter camps along with a host of other programs and vocational training opportunities. Our newly opened Camp Coyote Ridge makes it possible for our Ranchers to participate in an overnight camp helping to build the framework for independence. We hold a great number of social events and programs that encourage friendships and help prevent isolation… we have had the joy of seeing friendships grow and thrive no matter the disability. GHR will also provide critical residential options right on site. Golden Heart Ranch strives to create the best possible outcome and life for these very special golden hearted heroes.
