ESTIMATED PROJECT DURATION
Peppers Ranch provides housing for vulnerable children and foster families within the Oklahoma Department of Human Services. Housing is provided to support at risk youth in foster care and those aging out of foster care. Peppers Ranch is in need of enhanced water and sewer system in order to maintain and enhance current support of at risk youth in state custody.
DEQ & Wilshire Consulting group along with Logan county all believe that this intervention and work is needed for the safety of our community and continued growth in protecting Oklahoma's vulnerable youth.
Peppers Ranch serves foster care youth from birth to adulthood who are in state custody. We provide essential housing onsite, programs and wrap around therapies to ensure these youth are able to heal and becoming thriving members of society. These youth were able to find onsite resources and supports at Peppers Ranch throughout the pandemic and faced this national crisis in a safe environment because of Peppers ranch reducing the risk of additional trauma to that which they have already faced in their lives. Although the community learned of the needed additional infrastructure to not only grow but to be able to continue to help provide ongoing shelter for these youth and foster families.
Onsite maintenance team will work with local contractors: Wilshire consulting firm for infrastructure plan, Logan County Water, State DEQ to ensure all standards are met to build and enhance current infrastructure of septic and wells to meet the needs of the foster care community.
