Morning Star Boys’ Ranch Promotes Family Healing

An experienced real estate investor and entrepreneur located in Spokane, Washington, Keith Scribner has acquired and developed dozens of properties over the past 30 years. His investments have spanned both residential and commercial Spokane properties, including build-to-suit office spaces, restaurants, and medical centers. In his free time, Keith Scribner and his wife Leilani Scribner enjoy giving back to their community, focusing their philanthropic efforts on organizations such as the Morning Star Boys’ Ranch.

Founded in 1957, Morning Star Boys’ Ranch provides residential care for boys with behavioral challenges, offering a number of supportive resources for both boys and their families. With a focus on permanent healing and family reunification, the ranch offers individual and family counseling to help overcome challenges associated with adverse childhood experiences, maltreatment, and fetal exposure to drugs and alcohol. It promotes growth and healing in a compassionate environment, fulfilling educational, social, and emotional needs through its various programs.

The ranch’s educational resources include a remedial literacy program, as well as a dedicated school liaison. Each day, personal tutors are available to provide one-on-one instruction based on the boys’ individualized education plans. Morning Star also offers a variety of recreational enrichment activities, including an equine therapy program and agricultural projects in association with 4-H. The organization works to ensure a secure future for each boy that attends the ranch, maintaining a scholarship fund to assist former residents with future educational endeavors.
