What is the Application Process?

Step 1:
Begin by submitting the initial interest application on our website. Our team will review the information and then contact you to discuss our assessment. If we determine that your teen may be a good fit for the Ben’s Ranch Foundation program, we’ll move to Step 2.

Step 2:
Parents will fill out a second, more in-depth application. At this point, we’ll need the input of any doctors or therapists currently involved in the care of the teen, including access to medical records. If the teen continues to meet our criteria, we’ll contact you and move to Step 3.

Step 3:
We’ll conduct an in-person interview with the teen and his/her family to determine if an appropriate match with a host family can be made.
