The Edgewood Ranch Endowment was organized in the early 1990s for the sole purpose of providing a long-term source of funding for the operations of the Edgewood Children’s Ranch (the “Ranch”). The Ranch is a non-denominational faith-based organization. Its history in the Central Florida community is rich and longstanding, dating back to 1966 when Juvenile Court Judge D. Arthur Yergey saw a need for a residential facility for young children who exhibited negative social behavior due to family circumstances. Judge Yergey and John W. “Jack” Lynd subsequently opened the Edgewood Boys Ranch in Orlando. In 1968, a generous donation of 110 acres was given to be the permanent site for the Ranch, giving children a safe environment in which to change the direction their life was headed. The Ranch today is able to accommodate more than 70 boys and girls at a time. The methods and goals of the ranch today are the same as they were in 1966.
