Ranch Volunteers

Our volunteers are an important part of what makes Cristo Rey Ranch successful. You can volunteer individually or you can bring your family or small group out. From visiting the adjacent nursing home with the animals to cleaning cages, there is always a way to help out.

If you are interested in volunteering or would like more specific information, please contact us.
