E3 Ranch Foundation, founded in 2017 by major league baseball player Adam LaRoche and his wife Jennifer, serves combat Veterans, fights against human trafficking, and provides support during humanitarian crises globally. This three-pronged approach to “humbly serving others” has evolved in a way that only God could orchestrate.
THE E3 RANCH:
Adam found through spending time at Walter Reed Medical Center, Veterans are tired of being felt sorry for and simply want to be treated as who they are — “one of the guys" The E3 Ranch, located in Fort Scott, Kansas, provides Veterans a place to rest and recharge with those who can both understand and relate—their fellow warriors.
THE FIGHT AGAINST HUMAN TRAFFICKING:
During a trip to Southeast Asia, Adam’s eyes were opened to the painful realities of human sex-trafficking. Now a TFO agent of Homeland Security’s Human Trafficking Task Force, Adam and the team have joined in the desperate fight for those who are unable to fight for themselves.
HUMANITARIAN AID DURING CRISIS
Our team believes in stepping up when “the least of these” are in trouble.
Aiding during the Afghanistan crisis offered us the opportunity to help families escape and rebuild their lives.
The war in Ukraine — what started as a mission to evacuate 19 medically challenged orphans has now unexpectedly grown to a much larger humanitarian effort as God continues to open doors inside Ukraine.
So how do serving Veterans, fighting against human sex-trafficking and aiding during international humanitarian crises intersect? We have been incredibly fortunate to have many warriors come to the ranch who have spent their career working with our countries most elite units. These professionals have spent years, even decades in the darkest places of the world. Now many of them are able to use those skills and their networks to help support our efforts. So, what started out as hosting combat vets out to our Kansas ranch in an effort to simply serve them, has not only turned into life long friendships but also a vast network of men that were born to serve and who embody the words of Psalms 82 “Defend the weak and the fatherless; uphold the cause of the poor and oppressed.”
