Rancho Feliz operates under a unique set of principles. We believe in the concept of “enlightened self-interest,” which means that the most selfish thing we can do for ourselves is to serve others. Few things provide a greater sense of purpose or more lasting happiness.
To make certain those we help retain their dignity, we provide opportunity instead of handouts. Accordingly, all of our programs require those who receive to give back in some way. It is our belief that giving and receiving are not mutually exclusive; they’re part of the same circle. Time after time, we’ve been privileged to watch as givers become receivers and receivers have the chance to give.
