We want to give you an update on our activities and events regarding the
Coronavirus (COVID-19). Following recommendations from local, state, and national authorities, we have cancelled events and group activities until further notice. After working with fatherless boys for 30 years, this is having quite an impact on us. We still keep in touch with local single moms and boys and pray everyone stays healthy and well. It’s a difficult time for the moms, with schools closed possibly for the rest of the academic year!

We’re thankful for the boys that have been involved with us for many years and watching them now becoming responsible adults. Nick graduated last year and is taking college courses. Ryan has joined the Air Force after graduating two years ago. Prestin is graduating this year and also plans to join the Air Force, as did Tsyata, the daughter of one of our single moms. We’re proud of them serving our country!

Our last event was held at Black Horse Ranch with Cliff Matthews of Runnin’ Guns and Dane Hovey, coordinating cowboy activities and demonstrations. A special thanks to JoAnn Cosgrove, owner of for allowing us to use their facility. Attached are a few photos of our time there.
