The Nature Fun Ranch can no longer afford to foot the bill for all the Government referrals of troubled youth, says founder Corey Lane.

“The first time we got significant assistance from Government was from February, where 16 different agencies are now referring youth to us. However, they do not send a cent, and I will be invoicing. We can no longer carry that financial burden,” Lane said Saturday.

He revealed the ranch at Bruce Vale, St Andrew, was not doing well because the COVID-19 pandemic had affected them in a major way. His wife Latoya outlined their struggles. (CA)
