MISSION STATEMENT: High Sky Children’s Ranch is dedicated to healing abused children and promoting family wholeness.
HISTORY: In 1963, High Sky began with a simple tug of the heart. Joan Nobles was moved with compassion for the young girls in her community who had no place to go. Now 55 years later, High Sky serves over 2,000 children and families annually.
MEMBERSHIPS/AFFILIATIONS: San Angelo Chamber of Commerce and The Texas Child Care Alliance.
APPROACH TO BUSINESS: High Sky aspires to change the trajectory of each child’s life by providing a safe place where they can begin the healing process, while learning to trust and love again.
FOSTER CARE: Foster care is at the heart of our organization. Providing services to foster families and children in the community, and intensive therapy services to children and families who have found themselves entangled in the Child Protective Services system. This includes licensing foster homes, facilitating adoptions, providing 24-hour crisis intervention, parenting classes, and the PAL program to help our youth as they age out of our care.
STAY TOGETHER: Provides in office and in home services at no cost for families in the community with children ages 0-High School. Those services include 24-Hour Crisis Intervention, individual strategies that focus on each family’s immediate concerns, plus parent and youth workshops are available for all families to attend.
COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT: High Sky partners with other agencies to ensure permanency and stability for children in the foster care system. We sponsor other entities during Child Abuse Awareness month and hold an Annual Foster Care Fair to raise money for our local Child Services Board.
GREATEST ACHIEVEMENT: Our greatest achievement is when we can find a safe and stable home to care for the children we represent. When a child is adopted by one of our foster families there is no better feeling than to know we contributed to that family and child’s life in a positive way.
