The Little Warriors Be Brave Ranch by Ray LaBonte and Family opened its doors in the fall of 2014 and became the first facility of its kind, dedicated to providing trauma informed, evidenced based treatment to children who have been sexually abused.

Since then our treatment program has grown in size and scope, and clinical results confirm its success.

Our clinical results

Clinical data results confirm the success of the Be Brave Ranch treatment program for boys and girls aged 8-12 and girls aged 13-16. The results include highly significant reductions in post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression and anxiety. Additionally, the intensive and comprehensive treatment program significantly improves self-esteem, cognitive abilities and resiliency. We believe this will lead to profound long-term benefits including reduced mental-health related issues and enriched outcomes for these children in the future.

Our growing program

  • Since 2014, overĀ 300 children and families have participated in the Be Brave Ranch program.
