Special K Ranch - A Place to Call Home!

Special K Ranch provides family oriented Christian homes, on a working ranch for adults who have developmental disabilities. Although unaffiliated, the program has a strong Christian emphasis in philosophy and practice.

Contributions are received from community service clubs, churches, individuals, and private and corporate foundations. It is the goal of the ranch to become as self-sufficient as possible through income from ranch production, i.e.; livestock, greenhouse and nursery, and garden produce sales.

Special K Ranch is located on 230 acres, 10 miles West of Park City and 8 miles East of Columbus, Montana. The property is bordered on the north by Interstate 90 and on the south by the Yellowstone River. It is accessible by taking the frontage road from either Park City or Columbus.

The ranch serves both men and women, ages 18 and older. The program is designed to serve people who may need to live within a supportive community all of their lives. It is not designed to deal with those individuals exhibiting extreme behavior, emotional disturbances, or criminal delinquency. Residents to be admitted must have the ability to manage primary self-help skills and to communicate basic needs.
