A special Thank You to our Yellowstone family of donors and friends who supported us throughout 2018.  Yellowstone works hard to provide positive Christmas memories for YBGR kids and here are just a few from 2018.

Thank You Mountain Mudd

A caffeine buzz fueled more than just the work day on Monday, December 17th.

Local Mountain Mudd coffee kiosks donated $1 per cup from everyone who mentioned the Yellowstone Boys and Girls Ranch when purchasing their daily brew. 

We greatly appreciate the community support!

Happy Holidays for YBGR kids

Happy holidays are something Ruby has never known.  Ruby was removed from her mother’s custody years ago because of drug addiction.  Ruby has been through eight foster home placements.

Please take a moment to read Ruby’s story.

After years of neglect and abuse, Ruby is now in treatment at Yellowstone Boys and Girls Ranch and found something she can rely onsafety, security, supportive adults and professionals that are helping her heal. 

This will be Ruby’s first real holiday season to celebrate.  Like many YBGR residential treatment kids, it will be her first family-style Thanksgiving meal, first ice-skating party, first Christmas present exchange – all thanks to generous donors like you.

Thank you for giving generously this holiday season!
