How we express our wants and needs

How we express our wants and needs

Communication. Being able to express our wants, our needs, and our opinions. Think for a moment how frustrating it is when we’re in an area where people speak a language that we don’t. Suddenly, we can’t tell others what we need. We lack the language to say something as simple as, “I’m hungry – where can I get food?” or “Where is the washroom?”…

Former youth returns

Seated at a picnic table away from the hustle and bustle of the fourth annual Ranch Ehrlo powwow, Frederick Ironstar looked around the Pilot Butte campus and notices the changes from when he was a boy.  “It’s quite the place you have here. It was way different when I came here. There were two cottages, and a small shed, shops, and a classroom area. They had a big barn,” he…

A look back: the AGM

A look back: the AGM

Our agency has been around for a long time! Over 50 years, in fact. That means we have a lot of history, and, luckily, a lot of mementos from the past to help keep that history alive! Some of those long-hidden gems, long ago tucked away into closets and storage space, have come unearthed lately as our Hudson Administration Building undergoes renovations. Instead of keeping them to ourselves,…

New video about the Ranch

Looking at the growth and evolution of our agency over the past several years, a comparison that comes to mind is that of a living thing. And like living things, explaining exactly what we do is complicated. With hundreds of employees and dozens of residential and community services, it’s hard to distill down to a few words. So instead of just telling our story, we teamed up with Twisted…

5 reasons we love our job

We talk about careers at the Ranch often. We highlight the perks like how you get to touch lives from the first day on the job.

The GIF

The GIF

The .gif: it’s a polarizing entity. Does it begin with a soft g sound, like a certain peanut butter brand chosen by choosy moms? Or is it pronounced with a hard g, which would make it stand alone and have no concerns over being confused with a spreadable breakfast (lunch, or dinner) delicacy? The internet has debated for as long as .gifs have existed, and we may never come to an agreement.…
