The Flying H Youth Ranch (FHYR) is a Christian residential program for teenage boys from troubled families, operating under the jurisdiction of a tax exempt, non- profit, charitable organization, incorporated under sec. 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code. Facilities are located in a ranch setting 25 miles west of Yakima, Washington, on the eastern slope of the Cascade Mountains.
Funding for the Mission comes in the form of private, tax-deductible donations providing staff income, and tuition paid by families of the resident boys covering costs of services provided, including room, board, schooling, etc. All staff positions are filled by missionaries qualified under FHYR standards, and supported by private donations. God has always supplied the needs of FHYR through individual and group volunteers accomplishing needed work in construction and maintenance. Income for capital projects has come partly from the sale of assets, and primarily from private donations. Founded in 1962, the Mission has served over 2000 boys and their families.
Operating year-round with a capacity of 18 boys, we offer mentoring, schooling, and constant staff supervision, in a boarding school format. Boys typically come with an inability to build meaningful relationships, form responsible moral codes, control impulses, or achieve academically.
The boys are placed for an eighteen month minimum stay. The goal is to address issues in the entire family, aiming for personal and relational growth within that context. Presenting behaviors lead to a search for deeper root causes. Analysis and solutions are sought within the framework of a Biblical worldview. Our program includes spiritual, behavioral, emotional, social, educational, vocational, and recreational dimensions. Hope Academy is our dual accredited High School and serves as the primary means to catch our students back up to current credit requirements. A full range of academic courses are offered, as well as extensive vocational education opportunities, including machining, welding, automotive, culinary, wood shop, photography, etc.
