Throughout the past 42+ years of Big Oak’s existence, we’ve been burdened for our children, praying that above all, they find the peace beyond understanding. We know if they focus on their past and the measures this world uses to define their worth, restoration can never happen. Our striving, fighting on their behalf, and ultimate goal is for them to set their eyes on Christ.
Our 100-Year Vision
Our philosophy can be summed up in this statement: “A hundred years from now it will not matter what kind of house we lived in, the kind of car we drove or how much money we had in the bank, but the world may be different because you and I were important in the life of a child.”
Our administrative team has over 150 years of experience.
Big Oak Ranch would not exist as we know it, but for the generosity, courage and strength of our remarkable Board of Directors. Individually and as a group, they give of their talents, their experience and their time to give our children a chance at a normal life. Over the years, the impact they’ve had on our children has been profound.
