Lion Street believes it’s important to give back to causes close to our Owners.
Bluebonnet Youth Ranch
The Bluebonnet Youth Ranch (BYR) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that serves
as a long-term, residential home for dependent, abused and neglected children. The
facility is located in Yoakum, Texas, and is licensed to serve up to 30 children from
infancy to age 18. BYR allows children to live free from victimization, and presents
every opportunity for them to build better futures for themselves and mature into
successful, productive adults.

Insurance Committee and was honored with the organization’s Spirit of Life Award in
2019 for his philanthropic efforts.
