Please help our cause.
Fundraising to help transform lives through support and mental health services.
Bob Belloni Ranch, Inc. (rebranding to BBR) is a dynamic 501 C-3 non-profit organization. Currently we host 3 different programs. In an evolving economy with varying circumstances, we have taken some very hard hits in the last two years. Despite the circumstances, we never closed our doors to the patrons we serve. We rely heavily on public support and grant funding in order to be able to keep and maintain our programs.
We offer unique services that are very much in demand at all times. We also provide stable employment to anywhere from 25-50 employees in Coos County. We believe we have some of the most talented and caring people on our teams. We would like to be able to improve our wellness program for the staff in order to help keep them at their personal best. This includes a plan to provide an in-house EAP program.
BBR Counseling Services: BBRCS is an outpatient community non-profit mental health clinic, offering individual, couples, group, and relationship/marriage, and faith-based counseling. Our offices are comfortable and supportive. Other services include community education, certifications, and peer-delivered services.
We are moving to a new location thanks to a generous grant through the Judith Ann Mogan Foundation. This will allow us to expand services and grow our practice. We never turn anyone away who can not afford counseling. We are always in need of donations to be able to continue this benefit. Often times it is a lifeline to persons who simply can not or do not have the means or access to help. We work along side many community partners to provide these valuable services to our most underserved populations. Just $40.00 provides a 60 minute counseling session.
Belloni Boys Ranch: Our longest standing program. BBR has been in the community since 1965. We provide evidence-based, person-centered Behavioral Rehabilitation Services. We believe that young people deserve a second chance. Through our strength-based model, we are able to see young men in our programs have an opportunity to live a successful life. Our facility is outdated and in need of some costly repairs. Your contributions can directly impact the residents through improved living conditions. This year we hope to renovate some of our decks, create a BBQ area for recreation, add workout and gym equipment, and purchase new furniture. We would also like to add a mobile unit to the property for bringing in medical and mental health services to the youth. Other things we need are newer vehicles, and restoration of our ropes course.
Independent Living Program (ILP): This program serves 25-30 youth and young adults (16 -24) who are currently placed or who have been in the DHS foster care system at one point in time. Some of the skills and or resources we provide are career and educational support, assistance with transportation, clothing, rent, temporary housing, case management, peer support, etc. Funding helps cover the cost of staff so that all resources can be funneled to help those in the program, especially those in transitional housing.
You can support our overall general organization, or you can request specific support to any one of the three programs in place. However you choose to help, please know that we could not do this without you. Thank you for believing in us. We hope to be good stewards to the next generation.
