Mission Statement

Tall Tales Ranch is dedicated to building a life sharing community where both people with and without disabilities can live in a supportive, cooperative environment that honors their individuality, celebrates their uniqueness and helps them to reach their full potential.

Organization History

Pat and Susan Mooney started Tall Tales Ranch as a way to honor and support their middle son, Ross, who acquired a brain injury as a result of a genetic disease, and would require support for the rest of his life. Not expecting their other children to take responsibility for him, and wanting him to live as independently as possible, they began to explore the various options for both residential and vocational opportunities. They quickly learned that the options were few and that most of them lacked any real innovation or creativity. They knew that they could do better for their son and so they created the idea of building a home in a rural setting for their son, and others with disabilities, to live. It would be a place that would have animals to care for, gardens to tend and business opportunities that would take into account each person's skills and desires. The best part is that it would be an integrated community where the public could come to live and learn from our Ranchers.


My daughter Sarah is employed 4 days a week at our local Goodwill store. Being a SPECIAL needs young adult, her work although rewarding lacks in her socialization growth. Often times, special needs folks find it difficult to obtain friendships within the neuro-typical community. Tall Tales Ranch Young Adult Program fills that gap!

Thanks to "TTRYAP", her social, physical and instructional activities have increased greatly. She is developing new friendships with both the special needs community as well as our neuro-typical volunteers.
