It has been just over a year since Rancho Damacitas changed its focus from foster children to single mothers. In that year, the program continues to make strides in helping those mothers achieve their goals of being the best they can be.
Rancho Damacitas’ mission is to break the generational cycle of abuse and poverty by empowering at-risk, single mothers with young children and individuals with a history of foster care or child abuse, according to CEO Cal Winslow.
“These moms are just desperate to have a break, and it really is working,” he said.
According to Winslow, when Rancho Damacitas changed its focus, they went into it blind, going from 90 people on staff to nine to make the switch happen.
“Our idea is to have a two-year program here where we help them get on their feet and take advantage of all the opportunities that are available to them,” he said.
Since making the switch to caring for single mothers, Rancho Damacitas is full, with two families sharing each of the four ranch-style homes. Currently there are four houses at Rancho Damacitas.
