Golden Heart Ranch (GHR) provides young adults with intellectual and development disabilities opportunities to reach their fullest potentials and enjoy meaningful, satisfying and joyful lives. We are an inclusive community where all young adults learn, work and create lifelong friendships in a supportive and caring environment.
The Golden Heart Ranch Social Living Club offers a variety of skill-building opportunities, social events and learning experiences for young adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Activities include social and independent living skills programs, fitness and exploration club, cooking class, supper club and ranch days. We are proud to offer these programs in both our South Bay and Agoura Hills location.

Golden Heart Ranch uses donations of every size to build better futures for young adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We rely on our community of supporters to enable us to provide valuable and vital services to our communities. From our work in Southern California to our national leadership with the FRED Conference*, GHR leads the charge to empower families, professionals, and those who have committed themselves to provide purpose-driven, consumer-controlled lifestyle options.
*Golden Heart Ranch’s FRED Conference brought together a coalition of adult living professionals, farmsteads, self-advocates, policy organizations, and families to advance adult living opportunities for people with I/DD.
