Youth entering Ranch Ehrlo initially reside in one of five group homes located on the main campus near the town of Pilot Butte, five miles (8 km) east of Regina. Youth become familiar with the Ranch Ehrlo way-of-life and a plan is developed to address their particular treatment needs. Youth are then located to one of several group homes or independent living apartments in Regina.
Founded in 1966 by Dr. Geoff Pawson, Ranch Ehrlo Society’s history is rooted at its main campus at Pilot Butte, Saskatchewan. Spanning 70 acres, the campus has grown from one group home in 1966 to a small community consisting of six residential units (Mitchell House, Rorison House, Jewison House, Rever House, Jordan House and Appleton House); the McNamara Family Unit; Schaller School; and the Hudson administration building.
Other amenities available to youth include an outdoor hockey rink complete with a change house as well as an outdoor sports field where youth can play soccer, baseball and football. There is a common area in the middle of the campus complete with a barbeque that is used for a variety of Ranch related social functions throughout the year.
