About the Be Brave Ranch
Support survivors at the Be Brave Ranch
As the first facility of its kind, the Be Brave Ranch has grown into a world-class organization, forging new standards for child sexual abuse treatment. Girls and boys ages 8-12, and girls ages 13-16, come from all over Canada to participate in our intensive, trauma-informed therapeutic programs.
Designed by leading clinical and academic experts, the Be Brave Ranch programs are proven to help kids overcome the devastating effects of child sexual abuse. With their renewed mental health, these children can move on to lead vibrant, accomplished lives.More on the Ranch
“I never fit in…I didn’t have friends before either. I was bullied real bad before I came here. Then, I made friends at the Be Brave Ranch who were also abused. I now know that I am not alone and I can move on and pretty much do whatever I set my mind to…”
-Jay (age 12)

Clinical Results and Research
Clinical results confirm the Be Brave Ranch treatment programs are pioneering a new way forward for survivors of child sexual abuse. With meaningful reductions in symptoms of post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression and anxiety, kids get a second chance to grow into healthy, contributing adults. Results also show a marked improvement in children’s self-esteem, quality of life, cognitive abilities and resiliency. These changes will lead to reduced mental health issues and enriched outcomes for our little warriors and their families.See Clinical Results
It is very gratifying that initial findings from this program are so positive, and can potentially offer realistic hope to so many children and youth. There is a real lack of evidence-based programs that demonstrate meaningful change.
