The mission of the Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches is to prevent delinquency and develop strong, lawful, resilient and productive citizens who will make a positive contribution to our communities for years to come. This year the Youth Ranches will serve over 6,000 needy boys and girls.

This charitable, non-profit childcare agency was founded by the Florida Sheriffs Association and operates four residential campuses and two camping facilities. Additionally, it provides community-based services and family counseling to as many of Florida’s neglected, troubled children as funds will permit. The organization is funded primarily through charitable donations from its generous donors.

The Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches, Inc. is nationally accredited by the Council on Accreditation of Services for Families and Children, Inc. and the American Camp Association. For more information, please visit or contact your local Sheriff.
