MissionTall Tales Ranch is dedicated to providing a life sharing community where both people with and without disabilities can live in a supportive, cooperative environment that honors their individuality, celebrates their uniqueness and helps them to reach their full potential.
VisionTo provide an alternative living experience, designed to enhance the lives of adults living with developmental and intellectual disabilities, and to give their loved ones comfort knowing that they are always well cared for, challenged, productive and appreciated for who they are. By sharing life and work with people who are not living with disabilities, and by connecting with the community, Tall Tales Ranch will be an open place where all will come to be in nature, work with the earth, express their creativity and experience true diversity in action.
