For the last two years, Entergy has served as a foundation partner to Heritage Ranch Christian Children’s Home in Zachary, Louisiana, donating a collective $100,000 to the organization.
The residential home opened this fall to boys from the ages of 13 to 18 who are struggling with crises such as depression, anxiety and other challenges. The boys live with house parents while attending school and receiving help in the areas of tutoring, counseling and life skills. Counselors help residents build self-esteem, strengthen the family unit, and focus on health, wellness and life training skills.
