“I absolutely love it here and honestly, I don’t ever want to move. It almost makes me cry thinking of the kindness I’ve seen. I just want to THANK the Sheriffs and those who donate to keep Herrington Homestead going because I honestly don’t know how my life would be without this place.” Eric, 16 year old from Herrington Homestead
“I never believed I would graduate, or–better yet–go to college. I never believed in myself, but I have discovered a new person within. All of the support the home has given to me at Cherokee has made a great impact in my life.” Veronica, a 19 year old nursing student and resident at Cherokee Estate
“It was like the Ranch just handed you endless opportunity with education on a platter and said, ‘Be what you want to be. The sky is the limit’. Then gave you life, a home, a family, and all that goes with it…and literally encouraged you to go and make your dreams come true.” Dr. Paul Jones, former resident of the Boys Ranch
Serving hundreds of children in the residential care programs on the campuses of the Boys Ranch, Cherokee Estate, Mountain View, Herrington Homestead, and Pineland, this non-profit organization is responsible for lives. Real lives!
Each campus provides homes, actual family-oriented, united homes that include academics, extracurricular activities, sports, church, projects and more. From utility bills to bars of soap, clothes to tuition fees, healthcare to Christmas dinners, there are a lot of responsibilities in operating facilities like these.
We rely on donations and people who care to keep the doors open. Please hear your heart and take part!
People across the state are encouraged to visit GAgivesday.org and “Click if You Care” to help support the Georgia Sheriffs’ Youth Homes and be a part in supporting your communities while bringing awareness to the cause.
