BACC to Hold Ground Breaking for Arkansas Sheriffs’ Youth Ranches 

February 23, 2024

The Batesville Area Chamber of Commerce will hold a Ground Breaking ceremony for Arkansas Sheriffs’ Youth Ranches’ new home. The Ground Breaking will occur at 100 Saint Vincent Place in Batesville on Monday, March 4th at 2 p.m. 

Arkansas Sheriffs’ Youth Ranches is celebrating a project to construct a new home. Arkansas Sheriffs’ Youth Ranches has a long history of caring for children. Founded by the Sheriffs of Arkansas in 1976, ASYR provides hope and healing for children, who through no fault of their own, need a place to call home. ASYR’s mission is to address, remedy and prevent child abuse and neglect by creating safe, healthy homes for children. 

Mike Beebe, Former Governor of Arkansas stated "The Ranch has been a force for good in the lives of Arkansas children for nearly 50 years. Many children have come from homes broken by abuse and neglect, and the Ranch gives them an opportunity to thrive in a safe and stable home with houseparents who treat them like family. I am honored to be a part of creating a new home where many more children will find a place to call home in the years to come." 

"It has been my privilege to lead the Ranch for the last decade. Throughout these years, I have seen countless children whose lives have been transformed simply by having a safe, loving and nurturing place to call home. Our staff and houseparents are dedicated to providing the best life possible for the children who come to live with us. We are so grateful to be able to build a new home where many more children can build a brighter future for themselves" commented Nancy Fulton, ASYR CEO. 

Ray Dillon, President ASYR Board of Trustees said "We are thrilled that so many have generously supported the Ranch to help us build a new home. Since we don't charge families anything for our services, and we are 100% privately funded, we would not have been able to undertake a million dollar project like this without the generosity of our friends throughout the state and the diligent work of the volunteers on our committee who raised the funds for this new home." Ray Dillon, President ASYR Board of Trustees 

A reception will be held after the ground breaking. All community supporters, chamber members, ambassadors, board members, and staff are invited to attend.
