Trinity Teen Solutions and Triangle Cross Ranch



At these girls and boys ranches, owned by the same family in rural Wyoming, former residents describe being forced to do heavy manual labor and being tied to a goat by a leash as punishment. Previous state inspection­s found that girls had been kept from using the bathroom and forced to wet themselves. One resident from the boys ranch alleged he’d been branded with a cross. Under pressure from increasing­ly public allegation­s and a recent NBC News investigat­ion, the girls ranch, Trinity, abruptly ceased operations in October. The ranch’s leadership denies the accusation­s and says, “Reported allegation­s of abuse have been investigat­ed and [found to be] unsubstant­iated.” Triangle Cross Ranch remains operationa­l.
