Autism Family Retreat

On a peaceful little ranch in East Texas called Divine Acres Ranch, a work is in progress to build a non-profit, Christ-centered retreat for families with children who suffer from autism. The retreat is called Elijah’s Retreat. The vision is for 6 cabins to be built among the towering pine and oak trees overlooking pastures with horses, donkeys, miniature cows and goats. The hope is that families will come and enjoy the quiet, peaceful setting where the children can run and play and make as much noise as they want without fear of people who don’t understand them.

Each family will stay in a two-bedroom cabin with kitchen and laundry room. The retreat has play areas with swings, slides, rope climbing, sand boxes, and plenty of room to run. The children can interact with the animals, fish in the pond and hike through the woods.

Jeff and Kathie Moore own the ranch and have a 16 year old grandson named Elijah, who has autism. Elijah’s Retreat was begun in his honor. Our hearts go out to all of the families who struggle so selflessly every day to raise these precious children.
