El Ranchito de los Niños is a children's home dedicated to keeping sibling groups together who might otherwise be separated in foster care. The children are raised as a family in a rural farm setting, taught responsibility and educated as a means of building a foundation and breaking the cycle.  The home is a non-profit charity funded 100% by private donations, licensed by the State of NM CYFD and certified by the NM Christian Child Care Association.  El Ranchito considers all children regardless of age, sex, ethnicity, religion or disability.
