About The 127

LEADERSHIP

StevieRay Hansen, retired oilman and Texas Hill Country rancher, leads a team of dedicated staff, volunteers and financial supporters to provide a home for young men upon aging out of the foster care system. Together they are changing lives.

THE RANCH

The Lazy H Ranch and Retreat is truly a Hill Country jewel with over 600 acres of rolling and rugged hills. There is just under one mile of river frontage on the Llano river. Outdoor activities include canoeing, kayaking, fishing, and hiking. View the Gallery.

OUR GRADUATES

The young men who pass through our ministry originally came because they were in trouble with the law, kicked out of foster care, or living on the streets. We give them a chance, which for most, is the first break they've ever gotten. See their Stories.

Founder's Story

“I want to start an orphanage,” I told Laura over dinner one evening. “Not necessarily an orphanage, but something like that.”

“That’s real hard, Honey,” Laura replied. “Let’s just give to them.”

That didn’t seem like enough to me. I couldn’t help but wonder what would have happened to me without Buck and the other cowboys who became like family. Without men like Robert who kept stepping into my life to help me...

The more I learned about the plight of the kids leaving foster care, the more concerned I became. Most of them didn’t have a support system. One study found that within a year of leaving the foster care system, 66 percent of the kids were homeless, in jail or dead. A staggering 80 percent of the prison population had come out of foster care. Girls in foster care were 600 percent more likely than their peers to get pregnant before age 21.
