Children and Hope

Children are the hope of the world. They are the hope of our individual lives as we as parents, grandparents, and care givers strive to give them the opportunities to grow and flourish. When major illness, child abuse, or mental and emotional traumas enter a child’s life, the urgency of the immediate situation can put everything else on hold….including taking time to be together as a family in positive, uplifting circumstances. We at Crystal Creek Ranch realize how important a period of “normal” family time can be, and we are honored to partner with the following organizations to be able to offer a free mini-vacation to families dealing with these challenges.

Mercy Children’s Hospital

Ozark Family Resource Agency

Jane Pitt Pediatric Cancer Center, a St. Jude Affiliate Clinic

Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals of CoxHealth

Parents Against Child Abuse

Rainbow House

ARC of the Ozarks

We have a variety of places to stay from houses with all amenities to RV and camping areas. Please be our guest, at no charge, for up to two nights of lodging at one of our available houses or “lodging adventures”, for any days in April, May, June, last half of August, September, or October.  We will match your family’s needs with our available housing to best suit you.  Some availability may be possible in July and the first part of August on a last minute sign up list.

Your stay is at no charge to you, but advance reservations are necessary.
Please contact us at 573-226-2222 to discuss available dates and the number of people in your family group.

We are able to accommodate some disabilities at this time, and are working to upgrade our facilities to accommodate even more. Please call to find out our current status.

Come and enjoy the Ranch. We’ll all be glad you did!
