Ramey Estep Homes
Ramey Estep Homes is a 156-acre campus nestled in the mountains of Eastern Kentucky near Rush, Kentucky. This campus was founded to become a surrogate family to male and female youth between the ages of 14 and 17 who have been abandoned by their birth families or have otherwise become a ward of the state. At this facility, the peer is given a surrogate family environment in a home on the campus along with the opportunity to earn a high school education, receive special needs counseling, a structured lifestyle, skilled trades training, career guidance, and spiritual support. The ultimate goal of the Ramey Estep Homes is to instill family guidance to wayward youth in their critical years when their birth families have abandoned them. CMW has completed a master plan phase identifying campus expansion components, including new dormitories, additional infrastructure, new program spaces, expansions to the high school, new dinning / auditorium spaces, new chapel, stables and other support facilities to permit an increased peer population. Currently, Phase 1 design includes dormitories, dining hall / auditorium, residential psychiatric center, infrastructure, warehouse, along with other support facilities.
