Rodeheaver Foundation received a grant to create a military-style obstacle course to benefit the boys at Rodeheaver Boys Ranch and honor the fallen soldier Sgt. Timothy Officer. They’ve also recently built a learning center on our grounds with the funds from a St. Johns County and Palatka Rotary Club Grant. Rodeheaver Boys Ranch, located in Palatka, FL, has been providing complete care for up to 50 disadvantaged boys for the past 68 years. Children make their way to the Rodeheaver Boys Ranch because they have no home of their own due to parental death, desertion, divorce, disability, or dysfunction.
They are now trying to fundraise for a part-time tutor to make great use of our new Learning Center at the Ranch. Having a funded tutor in the past has lead to the Ranch boys consistently maintaining an overall grade point average of 3.00 or better. Rodeheaver Boys Ranch and Rodeheaver Foundation do not receive any government funding and rely solely on grants, events and private donations.
