Lives Under Construction (LUC) Boys Ranch is a residential treatment program for at-risk boys between the ages of 7 and 18. Our program is designed to enable boys to become productive, law-abiding, respectful young men through a balanced Christ-centered program of academics, vocational training, and good old fashioned hard work. Because the boys that we work with come from a variety of backgrounds, LUC staff members need to be servant-minded, consistent in enforcing the program through structure and discipline, calm and kind during stressful situations, committed to instilling habits that lead to later success, and dedicated to seeing projects through to completion. God has all of our "lives under construction."
