Selah Mountain Ranch is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) restorative foster care organization.  Our Ranch, nestled against the San Isabel National Forest on 74 acres in Fremont County, CO is open to local foster care youth, foster families, unaccompanied refugee minors. Our homes specialize in PTSD,  anxiety disorders, depression, attachment disorders, trauma and abuse, grief and loss.

Foster parents work closely with all child advocates, medical staff and therapist to support the child’s case plan and overall wellbeing. Family homes are available for placements through Colorado Department of Human Services and offer trauma informed therapeutic foster home training and support.


Our community of therapeutic foster homes welcome at-risk foster youth into loving families.  Kids are encouraged to enjoy animal therapy with the various pets that Ranch has to offer.  Children are exposed to customized and hands-on age appropriate activities that discover their passions. These  may include: art, photography, music, woodshop, mechanics, culinary lessons, beauty and fashion, crafts, access to a computer lab (coding/InDesign/graphic design), nature trails, hiking, 4H, survival skills, archery, camping, wilderness skills.  We also specialize in life skills for teens transitioning out of the system and hosting unaccompanied refugee minors.
