And when you welcome one of these children because of me, you welcome me. Matthew 18:5
The LoBo Ranch is a 501c3 non-profit community of child advocates combining our unique gifts and talents to serve sibling groups in foster care in the Polk, Highlands and Hardee County communities in the name of Jesus Christ.
Tony and Melissa Lobozzo began LoBo Ministries, Inc. with their three daughters to address the need to unite siblings in foster care who are currently living in separate homes. Through these valuable programs, siblings will be able to connect while growing personally through equine therapy, educational services, biblical programs, celebrations and special camps. In addition to serving siblings directly, we work to increase the number of foster care homes available for children in need as we help new foster care parents with furnishings and household items.
We begin this ministry with tremendous gratitude to our parents, Jim & Alana Lobozzo and Mike & Linda Westbrook for their love, support and perspective to see people through God’s eyes. We love you.
