What we do


Cedar Ridge Ministries is a private, non-profit, non-denominational Christian organization that consists of:



The primary purpose of Cedar Ridge Ministries is to reverse the negative influences in the lives of the boys we serve, providing each with the opportunity to achieve a meaningful and productive life. In addition, we reach out into the surrounding communities with adventure programs and radio broadcast services. We believe that the purpose of this organization can be best achieved by ministering to the spiritual, emotional, social, physical, educational and/or vocational needs of those individuals who enter our programs or are affected by our outreach. 


Cedar Ridge Ministries does receive funding from the state for the care of the residents and students, but we also rely on the generosity of friends like you to help us with the expenses that our funding does not cover. 

​Additionally, WCRH is solely supported through the donations of our listeners and Cedar Ridge Adventures depends on having a fully booked season to cover its daily operating costs, equipment and facility upkeep.  

​Your tax deductible donation to Cedar Ridge Ministries will make a difference. It will support our efforts to instill positive character traits into young men who have had mostly negative influences in their lives. It will help us to promote Godly values to our boys, our listeners and our community. It will help us to achieve our goal of Making a Difference... One Life at a Time.
