Eagle Ranch, one of the largest residential children’s programs in the Southeast, provides children and families in Georgia with Christ-centered housing, education, and counseling. Founded in 1985 by Eddie Staub, Eagle Ranch was designed to improve the lives of children and families experiencing a crisis. The woodland campus, spread across 315 acres in Flowery Branch, boasts residential zones that mimic the style of a neighborhood specifically tailored for children. The campus also houses a school that holds SACS accreditation, a chapel, and various facilities available for meetings and recreational activities.
Recognizing the need for a wide variety of continued support for children and families in the community, Eddie Staub created “The Wings Center”, located adjacent to the Eagle Ranch campus. The Wings Center offers outpatient counseling, retreats, professional training, and non-profit consulting for the Northeast Georgia and Metro Atlanta communities. Although The Wings Center’s proximity to the main campus of Eagle Ranch was beneficial, there was no direct connection between the two due to a stream running through the property. This separation imposed a long and unnecessary detour for anyone needing to move between the two locations.
Scott Bridge Company, supported by the generous donations of many vendors and suppliers, constructed a bridge spanning 110 feet, physically linking the main campus and Wing Center. Dedicated in May of this year, the “Scott Family Bridge” represents our purpose: to fulfill our God-given potential by building structures that serve and sustain life.
