Problem
Cal Farley's Boys Ranch allowed molestation's, beatings and torture for decades to hundreds of boys the age 3 - 18.

Solution
A complete and fair investigation by the Texas Rangers on behalf dozens of us survivors.

Personal story
Please help us get justice by having a full and fair investigation on Cal Farley’s Boy’s ranch for terrible child abuse and molestation, for decades on many of us.

This is part of a letter submitted to The Guardian last year, by my niece.

I called my uncle Allan to let him know that they were issuing an apology, and immediately his voice cracked. He went from anger to despair, and then back to anger. I have no doubt that he was overcome with emotion. For years he has been trying to get someone, anyone, to listen to him about what happened at Cal Farley’s Boys Ranch. No one would.

He even called the Texas Rangers demanding they do an investigation, but they showed little interest. My uncle Allan blames the death of my uncle Greg on Cal Farley’s Boys Ranch. My uncle Greg fought addiction his entire life and ended up dying alone behind a dumpster of a heroin overdose. Drugs were uncle Greg’s escape from his purgatory childhood. The ranch had a negative effect on all three brothers; each dealt with it differently.

Cal Farley’s Boys Ranch is now issuing an apology, but is an apology enough? Does an apology make up for a lost childhood? Unfortunately, my father, Rusty Votaw, is now deceased and will never get that apology, same as my uncle Greg. They both died thinking their stories would never be heard. Well my uncle Allan is speaking for both of them now, and for all the other victims of Cal Farley’s Boys Ranch. Evil lives in darkness, but once you shine a light on it, it dissipates.

My War with Cal Farley’s Boys Ranch
1957-1967
My two brothers, Rusty and Gregg Votaw, and myself were put on Cal Farley’s Boys Ranch in the year of 1957. The boys ranch was a place for boys in trouble with the law, or boys with no home, which was our case. There was no one to speak up for us to stop the horrors bestowed upon us such as sexual molestation, torture, brutal beatings and the never-ending pain and fear.

I contacted the Texas Rangers to file charges a few years ago and they showed little interest. Since then the truth has came out and many survivors have came forward.

We are asking you to please sign this petition for a full and complete investigation of the horrors that took place for over a half century.
