McCrossan Boys Ranch is excited to announce the completion of its newest residence hall on campus – Huyser Hall. The 9,968 sq. ft. addition will help modernize our campus for at-risk youth and provide single room living quarters for boys residing at the Ranch.
“Some of our residential cottages are now 50 years old. We are excited to add a more modern and energy efficient facility that will greatly benefit our programs and the youth we serve,” says Executive Director, Brian Roegiers.
McCrossan Boys Ranch currently has the capacity to serve up to 77 boys on campus. Over the course of a year approximately 200-250 at-risk youth are served.
The cottage is named after Arie Huyser, an Iowa farmer who recently left his legacy at the Ranch. The cottage is being funded completely as a result of the generous donation of Mr. Huyser. This is a significant project on campus to help enhance our programming, safety and security at McCrossan Boys Ranch.
Recently, the Sioux Falls Chamber of Commerce came out to help us kick off the opening of the new building with a ribbon cutting. We also had a special dedication ceremony for the new building during our annual Appreciation BBQ. Thank you to everyone who helped us celebrate! The boys will be starting to move into the new building over the next few weeks. They are anxiously awaiting the day they get to move into their new “home.”
