Lives Under Construction Boys Ranch (LUC Boys Ranch) was founded by Ken and Sheila Ortman in 1982 with the premise that God created each person with a purpose. Accomplishments at the Ranch are based on two basic principles: that God can change lives in miraculous ways and that good work habits are important for building character, self-worth, and self-discipline.
The boys who come to LUC Boys Ranch have the opportunity to experience and learn the joy that comes from living in a Christian family environment, where they can feel love and acceptance. Our boys have the freedom at the Ranch to learn which choices they make produce rewards or consequences.
LUC Boys Ranch does not use behavior modification drugs but rather helps the young man deal with his fears and anxieties in appropriate ways. We use a balanced diet and exercise to help in this process of re-building lives.
