Randy and Vicki Thomas, home parents at the Boys Ranch, received the Core Award for Responsibility. The Thomases always go above and beyond the call of duty. They exemplify the word “responsibility.” In the last year, the Thomases worked 10 straight weeks until another set of home parents could be hired and helped train new home parents. They are dependable, flexible and always eager to help out. They have positive, healthy relationships with each boy in their unit, as well as other boys at the Ranch. The Thomases recognize each boy’s strength and respect them as individuals. They have adapted well to Trust-Based Relational Intervention and implement it on a daily basis. They make taking care of the boys seem effortless and have a true compassion for this ministry. The boys love and respect the Thomases and we are honored to have them at MCH.
