Founded in 2018, Empower 7 is a Christian, faith-based organization created for the sole purpose of empowering the lives of vulnerable, at-risk youth in North Texas. Critical to the Empower 7 vision and mission, The Empower 7 Ranch will provide a safe, serene home for youth whose need for care and treatment cannot be met safely and effectively by their families or in a traditional foster family setting.

The goal for The Ranch is to provide residential, educational and community services to ensure youth are prepared for adulthood, form healthy connections with society, and know God’s love and grace. While faithfully planning for The Ranch, Empower 7 is working to close the gaps that prevent youth from thriving through their Blessings & Growth Programs, which addresses the immediate or emergency needs of vulnerable, at-risk youth while providing them with learning experiences to shape their future.
