Ranch Ehrlo Society

About Ranch Ehrlo

Ranch Ehrlo Society, a non-profit organization, was founded by the late Dr. Geoff Pawson in 1966. It started as a single residential unit for six troubled boys and grew to a multi-service agency delivering a wide range of accredited mental health and developmental services on campuses located in and around Regina, Saskatoon, and Prince Albert.

Our services include outpatient assessment and psychotherapy, family therapy, early learning, education and vocational training, emergency receiving services, treatment foster care, supportive housing, residential treatment for children and youth with mental health and addictions needs, and residential and vocational services for older adolescents and adults with developmental disorders. Our clients are referred from across the country.
