Animals, Nature, and Wide-Open Spaces at The Ranch

From gardening to caring for the animals, residents at The Ranch enjoy the relaxed pace of life in the country. Located just seven miles outside of San Marcos, The Ranch serves approximately 16 residents whose personalities, likes and dislikes are as different as those of the members of any family. That’s why we offer a variety of engaging activities both on and off the 63-acre property.


Our staff of caring Direct Support Professionals assists our residents in creating a daily schedule that best serves both their needs and preferences.


All residents are expected to help with chores in the common areas and around the property. They are also able to give back to the greater community by volunteering in the nearby town of Staples. Many receive support with social and living skills, such as personal care and money management as well. Outings to San Marcos and neighboring communities are regular activities that our residents look forward to.

The number of occupants housed in the several buildings scattered across the property varies, but the family-style atmosphere and quality of life remains consistent. Each residence offers roomy suites, a design that encourages social interaction while at the same time offering an appropriate amount of privacy.
