FAQ

How do you serve children and families?

Youth Horizons serves kids and families through three different avenues: the mentoring program, Kinloch Price Boys Ranch, and public presentations. The mentoring program matches boys and girls between the ages of 5 and 14 with a Christian mentor (of the same gender) who commits to spend one-on-one time with them. The Kinloch Price Boys Ranch is a group home for boys in middle and high school in need of out-of-home placement. Youth Horizons also educates the public about the needs of at-risk children in our community and the nation. This is accomplished through presentations to church groups, civic gatherings, and school assemblies.

What is an at-risk child?

In our program, an at-risk child is defined as a young person who is either 1) fatherless 2) living in a single-parent home 3) has been referred through a social service agency, or 4) has a parent who is incarcerated or on parole. Of the boys and girls we currently serve, more than 80 percent are being raised without the influence of their father.

Where do your youth come from?

Youth Horizons’ kids are referred through many different avenues. School teachers or counselors are one referral source. Referrals are also made by social service agencies such as COMCARE, DCCCA or Youthville. Some referrals come directly from a parent who is reaching out to ask for extra assistance for their child.

Is Youth Horizons only located in Wichita?

Youth Horizons’ mentoring program serves youth in the Greater Wichita area. The Kinloch Price Boys Ranch accepts youth from anywhere in the U.S. Though Youth Horizons is only located in Wichita, we are a part of the Christian Association of Youth Mentoring (CAYM), a national association of non-profit mentoring programs.

How is Youth Horizons funded?

Youth Horizons is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Most of our funding comes from private donors. Some give on a monthly basis, while others give annually. A small portion of our funding comes from grants, church mission funding and speaking engagements. Income from our two largest community events, the Christmas Benefit Concert and the Easter Sun Run, also provide a portion of the budget.
