2015-2016 Iowa State President's Charity
Iowa State Worthy President Steve Langton and State Madam President Brenda Youngbear have chosen Wildwood Hills Ranch as their State Charity.
Wildwood Hills Ranch is a 400 acre non-profit facility, set in the scenic hills of Madison County, just south of Des Moines. Founded in 2001, the ranch exists to transform lives and strengthen communities by providing healing, hope, and God’s unconditional love to children and at-risk youth. Free summer camp and year round retreats are offered to at-risk children ages 8 to 18. Kids are immersed in a fun, safe environment where character, leadership and teamwork are modeled and taught.
Wildwood Hills Ranch exists to transform lives and strengthen communities by providing healing, hope, and God’s unconditional love to children and youth at risk.
We envision the day when the self-perpetuating cycles of dysfunction and impoverishment in families are broken, and Midwestern children have the opportunity to grow into healthy adults – educated, free from poverty, safe from abuse and violence, and engaged as members of the communities and nurturing families. We are guided by the following values:
•Faith in God
•Compassion and Kindness
•Integrity and Trustworthiness
