Getting Involved at the Texas Boys Ranch

Peter Bergstein is actively involved in his community and supports many organizations and charities, including the Texas Boys Ranch. In addition, Peter Bergstein has been a member of many boards over the years for groups such as the Lubbock Rotary Club and the Red Raider Organization.

A nonprofit organization, the Texas Boys Ranch is a child care facility, foster care agency, children’s shelter, and adoption agency licensed by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services. Since 1975, the Lubbock organization has cared for more than 1,100 children, ages 3 to 18.

The organization invites interested parties to contribute their time or donate to the ranch. Volunteers can choose among several roles, including that of a ranch wrangler, who helps maintain the property, and a homework hero, who offers tutoring services to the children. There are many more roles to choose from; they are listed on the website, www.texasboysranch.org.

Additionally, the Texas Boys Ranch is always seeking compassionate families willing to provide foster care. There are approximately 30,000 children in the foster care system right now, and they all need the love and support of a foster family.
