We are blessed with a ranch that is capable of meeting our operating budget, and we want our students to see that we are effectively utilizing the resources God has given us. We operate a few businesses on the ranch that both meet our needs and give students an opportunity to learn. Below are our business centers where students learn planning, budgeting, follow-through, attention to detail, work ethic, and many other life lessons.
Thousand Hills Pet Resort provides premium doggie daycare and boarding for your beloved pet! We are able to accommodate dogs of all sizes and ages in our large daycare and overnight boarding facilities. This project ties in perfectly with the mentoring program, in that our students are able to care for the animals, as well as learn the marketing and business skills required to run a successful business operation. Additionally, our students receive the therapeutic benefits that come with spending time with animals.
MissionCars.com helps churches, ministries and other community service organizations process and benefit from car donations. We handle all the details of receiving, advertising, selling, and doing the paperwork for the car, and when the transaction is complete we split the net proceeds with the referring organization. This frees them up from the headaches associated with donated vehicles, while still helping them financially. Our students are able to learn basic car maintenance, advertising, marketing and communication skills, while gaining firsthand knowledge of small business.
