About Us

Our mission is to provide a safe and loving transitional home for women to break free

 from the bondage of addiction, and find freedom in Christ.

Rock Bottom Ranch is a non-profit, Christian transitional recovery home for women who are at a critical crossroad in their lives.  We believe true transformation occurs when hearts are willing to submit to God's will and that Scripture has all the answers for life's problems.  It's not easy to change a life, but it is one-hundred percent possible with Christ.

Our Story

The vision for Rock Bottom Ranch was born out of a recognition of the epidemic of drug and alcohol addiction claiming so many families in our community.  God placed a burning desire in our hearts to make a difference.  The Ranch was established to take back what the enemy has claimed, one life at a time, offering women a future and hope through a relationship with Jesus Christ.
