UPDATE AT BOTTOM
For over 50 years, Triple R Ranch has been impacting the lives of others. Hurricane Matthew, combined with the heavy rains from the storm two weeks ago, produced historical flood conditions, damaging many of our facilities, housing and equipment. In addition, over 4 feet of water at the entrance of the ranch has prevented scheduled events and retreats from happening over the past couple of weeks. The ranch has never generated large profits, and the loss in retreat and event income has caused significant losses in revenue.
We do not mean to detract from the other needs around the world (Haiti is currently on many minds and hearts). However, many are asking how they can help here at home with 3R. If you would like to support the mission of the Ranch, then the time is now, and it has rarely been more critical.
As we work to recover, we ask for your assistance. We have donors who are able and willing to match up to $25,000, but we need your help to get there. In addition, we will be posting volunteer days in the near future for those who are local and able to help. Triple R Ranch is a place of ministry and memories. We ask that you help us continue in this mission.
If you feel led to donate, then go to:
Please mark donations as “Hurricane Relief.”
For volunteer opportunities, we will be updating this site as well as our Facebook.
Any and all gifts are much appreciated and needed throughout the year. If this is a good time for you to consider monthly support for the 3R ministry, you may set this up at the above donation site too.
Thank you all for your prayers and support
The Triple R Team

Here is a short preview of the work that we have been doing since the hurricane. In every flooded cabin, we removed the wall and insulation from damaged areas. In staff housing, we had to remove flooring as well as other areas. It is a significant amount of work, but we are all persevering! We also have our volunteer day tomorrow and cannot wait! We will keep posting updates.
