Triangle Cross Ranch offers full time, rural residency as well as respite care for adults diagnosed with an intellectual or developmental disability, including developmental delays, autism spectrum, Cerebral Palsy, Down's Syndrome, seizure disorder, traumatic brain injury (TBI) and Prader-Willi Syndrome.
Triangle Cross Ranch is a planned and protected community for adults. Our residents live in an environment that is fully their own, living next door to their closest friends and peers and learning to operate as a contributing member.
N—Necessary to the community
Each individual plays an important role as a volunteer, a voice and a vital participant in our protected community as well as the community at large.
O—Oriented to daily living
Learning to live in the role of an independent adult takes time and training. We’re willing to allow as much as necessary to ensure success.
R—Realistic in expectations
Mistakes are God’s greatest learning tool. Rather than deny them, we embrace them for the lessons that are learned through them.
M—Moral in action
With Christ as our moral compass, our Ranchers learn to take responsibility for their words, actions and decisions with plenty of forgiveness and second chances on a daily, hourly and minute-by-minute basis.
A—Ability beyond disability
Our focus is on abilities and what each person CAN do. Ranchers and staff support each other in their weaknesses.
L—Loved beyond measure
We believe that every life is valuable and precious, no matter the abilities or disabilities. Love is unconditional, praise is loud and the laughter is contagious!
"Rabbi," his disciples asked him, "why was this man born blind? Was it because of his own sins or his parents' sins?" "It was not because of his sins or his parents' sins," Jesus answered. "This happened so the power of God could be seen in him."
We have five 'houses' at Triangle Cross Ranch, with 3 homes (Love, Grace and Peace) currently occupied with Ranchers. Because we are Christ-based, we chose long ago to give our houses names that will remind us daily of God's vision for humankind.
Helping by giving is a wonderful way to contribute to the community, we here at Triangle Cross have built for the residence. There are several ways you can do that.

Do you work for a company that allows you to volunteer one day a year? Are you willing to burn weeds in a ditch once or twice a year? Do you know a high school student that has to complete community service hours in order to graduate?
Do you have some gardening experience? Would you be interested in committing to playing games with our Ranchers once a month, or mentoring a specific Rancher?
The mission of Triangle Cross Ranch is to provide a Christ-centered whole-life structure where acceptance, security and self-esteem for adults with cognitive challenges become a reality.
Triangle Cross Ranch operates within a life coach philosophy of care. This means teaching and training each person in the real issues of daily life, allowing for as much independence as possible, encouraging and supporting them within their individual abilities. Triangle Cross Ranch strives to create a new definition of NORMAL, celebrating each individual as a God-pleasing creation.

For it was You who created my inward parts. You knit me together in my mother's womb. I will praise You because I have been remarkably and wonderfully made. Your works are wonderful, and I know this very well.
Let's get real --- any non-profit agency ALWAYS appreciates monetary donations. Triangle Cross Ranch does not receive any Federal or State assistance, as we are a private agency. There are core costs that never never go away, fees incurred to ensure quality staff is mentoring our Ranchers, and the normal expenditures required to maintain houses. We cherish EVERY donor that supports our mission regardless of the amount they are able to contribute.
Do you have gently used freezer, or piece of furniture that you no longer need? What about that extra lumber you bought for your project, and then found out you got too much? There are many uncommon items that could be useful to us, in a variety of ways. If you believe you may have something that TCR could utilize, call or email us to make arrangements for delivery.
