Every journey starts with a single step. B Walker Ranch is out to make a profound difference for families whose lives have been touched by autism. A full circle Ranch day program that focuses on the Ranchers abilities VS their disabilities.
AN IDEA WHOSE TIME HAS COME
B Walker Ranch is in direct response to the epidemic amount of people aging out of the school systems and in need of quality programming. It has been estimated that over 1,200,000 adults with autism will be turning 22 years of age with nowhere to go. It is estimated that 11% of every community has a special needs population.
BWR is a self-sustainable, organic model program designed to be duplicated in communities everywhere.
