Local nonprofit Ranch Hands Rescue will get $10 million in state funding coming out of this year’s legislative session.

The funds, which were announced by state Sen. Jane Nelson, R-Flower Mound, will help fund the sanctuary that serves men, women and children through animal-assisted counseling.

It also will help fund Bob’s House of Hope, a new safehouse for male survivors of sex trafficking that was created through the nonprofit.

“Bob’s House of Hope is a tremendous dream of mine that will help an underserved population of human trafficking survivors, men aged 18 and up. This funding will give life to that dream, and I am grateful for Senator Nelson’s work in securing it,” Ranch Hands Rescue CEO Bob Williams said in a news release from Nelson’s office.
