June – 2019
Closing in on six decades, Sky Ranch Foundation℠ continues to support our nation’s at-risk youth. The Beverage Alcohol Industry’s contributions have helped the Foundation to award grants to organizations such as those below.
Kamuela, HI-based West Hawaii Mediation Center (whmediation.org) has been serving the mediation needs of the West Hawaii community for over 25 years, providing community-based mediation for both self-referred and court/legal system referred cases. Focusing on school age children, their ‘peer mediation’ is both a program and a process where students of the same age group facilitate resolving disputes between two of their peers. The mediation process allows students to become actively involved in transforming the school climate by becoming agents of change.
Foundation President Ralph Aguera states, “The West Hawaiian Mediation Center underscores the importance of reaching at-risk youth during the earliest stages of their development, a key process toward promoting positive behavior.”
For more than 15 years, Bismark, ND-based Path North Dakota (pathinc.org) offers foster care, adoption, in-home and community-based family services in North Dakota and Idaho. More than 400 families have provided Foster care to more than 1,400+ children through this organization’s efforts. “On any given day, there are nearly 443,000 children in foster care in the United States. In 2017, more than 690,000 children spent time in U.S. foster care,” notes Foundation Chairman George McCarthy. “With their additional services, this organization further helps to ensure that these children lead productive lives.”
