January 2020

It’s a new year and Sky Ranch Foundation℠ is fast approaching our sixth decade of assisting in the rehabilitation of at-risk youth. With contributions received from the Beverage Alcohol Industry, the Foundation reflects upon the many organizations which we have, in some small way, helped to achieve that goal. To-date, more than $3.6 million has been awarded. At our most recent board meeting held in July 2019, Sacred received a grant.

Overland Park, Kansas-based Sacred’s (kidsaresacred.org) mission is to eradicate the financial fear and stress that a family may feel when a loss of income is caused by child sexual abuse. Since the beginning of 2019 sacred has grown from serving three states to nine including Missouri, Kansas, New York, Texas, Maryland, North Carolina, Connecticut, Arizona and Tennessee. Sacred has impacted 55 families and163 children in 2019 and both continue to grow.

“Thanks to Sacred, sexually abused children and their families have somewhere to turn to, thus offering some assistance and a big shoulder to help see them through traumatic times,” says Ralph Aguera, Foundation President.
