Preston Ranch exists to provide a loving, permanent, Christ-centered home and family for children who have been abused, abandoned, or orphaned.
It is the mission of Preston Ranch to provide Christ-centered support to Christian parents committed to adoption; to provide homes and community to help them meet their goals as adoptive parents raising children and aiding in the healing, restoration, and security which is rightfully theirs.
Each Home has a story
Each home at Preston Ranch has it’s own story of how God provided for the building, or buying or moving of that house to provide a home for children! To God be the Glory!
Christ Community Church in Roggen gave a substantial gift to Preston Ranch for building this first home. The Lord provided so much volunteer labor and building materials that when the house was completed there was money left over. Volunteers included a contractor from Colorado Springs who came to be the job foreman, an architect from Boulder drew all the plans and plats, groups of men and women worked on various parts of the building, a contractor gave 354 sheets of plywood, a hardware store gave all the electrical needs and the list goes on. This is a 9400 square foot home full of children!
With money in the bank the board voted to build another home. This home is about 2000 square feet smaller than the first home but built with some improvements over the plan of the first one. This time the construction used every penny that was in the bank, but it was enough!
Some friends of Preston Ranch had a family home that sat empty. They offered the building to Preston Ranch and they would cover the cost of moving and set up! A full basement was dug and the house set on that. An addition was added and now serves a family who takes physically handicapped children.
The same family who gave the home also offered this house to Preston Ranch at a very attractive price and since there were the funds to make the deal this became the fourth home. Again a basement was dug and a small addition put on.
A destructive hail storm went through the area around Preston Ranch and left a great deal of damage. Roofs were damaged, siding had holes in it and multiple windows were knocked out along with other damage. During the months of waiting for the insurance claim to be paid the repairs were being made as the Lord provided funds. During this time a seven bedroom, brick home went on the market at a very reasonable price just one mile from the main ranch. In Gods timing, when the repairs were completed at Preston Ranch, without the insurance claim money,this house became available. By adding some to that amount Preston Ranch was able to buy the 5th home
