Be Brave Ranch
The Be Brave Ranch is set to open in June 2014.
Throughout the country there are dozens of “therapeutic centres” dedicated to the “rehabilitation” of child rapists, but not a single long term treatment facility devoted to the treatment of the damaged victims they’ve left behind. By creating the Be Brave Ranch by Ray LaBonte and Family, Little Warriors is taking a major step towards correcting this baffling inequity.
To provide a safe and secure place of treatment and healing, aimed at the MIND, BODY, HEART and SPIRIT of child victims and their families.
- To provide children who have experience the horror of sexual abuse a safe place to heal.
- To provide families affected by child sexual abuse a place to deal with their emotions, grief, guilt, and profound anger so they are able to support their children.
- To provide those in relationships with sexual abuse survivors, a place to learn about symptoms, prevention and how to understand the long lasting effects.
The Be Brave Ranch Approach
Recovery from early childhood trauma largely depends on whether the family was responsible for the victimization, how the parents respond to the child’s disclosure, as well as the caregiver’s own history of trauma and psychopathology. Believing and validating the child, tolerating their emotional states, and managing the caregiver’s emotions are the three responses that have been found to be most crucial to a child’s recovery. The Be Brave Ranch’s early intervention program will focus on the victim.
The Be Brave Ranch by Ray LaBonte and Family is the true culmination of the Little Warriors’ mission – our best chance to help change the world into a better one than we started in.
The intention is to treat 40 kids each and every month. That’s 480 transformed souls a year.
