What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Residential Services for Adults with Developmental Disabilities

Echoing Hope Ranch provides residential services for up to 10 adults with autism and other developmental differences at our San Pedro River site.

Our professionals work around the clock to meet the needs of those we support by helping them gain the skills necessary to complete daily chores, grooming, planning, participating in recreational activities and leisure skills, and improving social & communication skills. Individuals served by this program also receive assistance and support with vocational and educational opportunities.

Ranchers are provided with an opportunity to work with animals or in the gardens, swim, hike, exercise and work on art projects and crafting in the daytime. Ranchers participate in paid work opportunities helping to grow produce which will be sold to local residents at Farmers' Markets and through the Community Supported Agriculture program (CSA). Ranchers also raise livestock for meat production, chickens for egg production, and goats for milk which can be used in making caramels, lotions and soaps.

The program is funded through a variety of methods including private pay and through state agencies.

The Ranch is designed specifically for teens and adults with autism and other developmental differences. Determining factors to be used in admitting person to our services include that they are 18 years or older and that they are willing to participate in Echoing Hope's ranchers program.

Although we cannot guarantee there will be space and staff available, we can guarantee applications will be reviewed in a timely manner and that the Echoing Hope Ranch team will be in touch shortly upon receipt.

Echoing Hope Ranch offers employment opportunities and supports for people with Autism and other developmental differences.

People with developmental differences work in many different work environments through EHR's Employment Services Program. They may work in a group supported environment as Ranchers in the agricultural, facilities, or janitorial crews, or they may work for an organization off-site ranging from movie theaters, grocery stores, and more.

On crews at the Ranch, employees learn farming and animal care techniques or they may learn building and repairing skills. They also learn what is required in a work environment in order to be a productive employee. Employment Services participants work with others to foster teamwork and a sense of community.

All end-products are sold at local Farmer's Markets, through EHR's Community Supported Agriculture program (CSA), or at EHR's annual Fall Harvest Festival. This allows employees to participate in the greater community while developing work and social skills.

The program is funded in a variety of ways including donations and through state agencies. While EHR cannot guarantee that there will be positions available, we will review all applications and respond shortly thereafter.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Echoing Hope Ranch first came together in 2009, formed from the experiences and concern of families, striving to ensure happy, productive lives for their now adolescent and adult loved ones.

Our guiding philosophy is that all people continue to change and grow throughout their lives so their programs must be flexible as well. We are determined to create an organization based on respect for the individuality of each person served.

In addition to providing quality services, we also believe in reaching out to others who would like to replicate our ideas, providing advice and mentoring. In this way we provide hope that together we will be able to change the lives of countless numbers of people affected by autism.

Echoing Hope Ranch is a place where teens and adults with autism can be productive in a peaceful, supportive environment in Southern Arizona. We hope you will help give individuals with autism a better quality of life in our community.

Individuals with autism require specialized assistance and training in order to maximize access to social, educational, vocational and family activities. With individualized support, amazing things can happen.

Individuals learn to more effectively communicate, better care for themselves, develop relationships with those around them and lead more fulfilling lives in nearly every aspect.

We support these efforts through Habilitation and Respite where our in home services are designed to provide support to individuals with disabilities and their families to allow them to live in their family homes as long as possible. Echoing Hope Ranch places a high value on assisting people with autism in paid and unpaid (volunteer) employment opportunities. Each person’s program is based on his or her specific interests and needs and is driven by an Individual Support Plan (ISP) that outlines measurable, observable goals and through our day Program which are based on an agricultural model where the program participants are provided with an opportunity to work with the animals or in the gardens, swim, hike, exercise and work on crafting in the daytime.

Since 2009 Echoing Hope Ranch has has the guidance of families and the support of the Cochise and Pima County communities along with an experienced, professional and dedicated staff. In addition to providing quality services, we also believe in reaching out to others who would like to replicate our ideas, providing advice and mentoring.
