Field Trip to Kenny’s Strawberry Farm
Jeremiah’s Ranch Vision
In 2010, a group of parents came together in Fallbrook out of concern for their adult children, all of whom have a developmental disability. Their concern was what was going to happen to their child when they no longer could care for them. In 2011, the nonprofit called Jeremiah’s Ranch was formed. The primary focus was, and still is, to create a community for their adult children to reside. Jeremiah’s Ranch has built a community within Fallbrook offering many types of activities.
Jeremiah’s Ranch has monthly support group meetings, educational guest speakers, parties, dances, and a Special Olympics sports team. In 2015, Jeremiah’s Ranch opened the College of Adaptive Education, which is an inclusive non-accredited college experience offering evening classes such as Art, Dance, Reading, and Sign Language.
Jeremiah’s Ranch is still looking for land in Fallbrook which would provide space to expand these programs and to meet the main goal of providing good housing. In the meantime, Jeremiah’s Ranch relies on various churches and venues within Fallbrook to provide the space needed for current programs. The next step for Jeremiah’s Ranch is to consolidate these programs to one location and have a place to call their own. To realize our goals, Jeremiah’s Ranch is seeking funding for the purchase of land, or purchase of a property which can be transformed for our housing and community center needs.
