ALLIANCE, Neb. (AP) - The former Boys Ranch in the Nebraska Panhandle is being renovated and should resume serving the community later this year.

The Alliance Times-Herald reports that the facility located 17 miles south of Alliance will reopen in the fall as a Teen Challenge of the Midlands facility.

The facility will focus on drug and alcohol issues and negative behaviors in boys ages 13 to 17.

The dormitory, offices and other facilities are all being renovated.

Isaac Hunsberger, with Teen Challenge of the Midlands, says the facility will also have an area honoring the history of the Boys Ranch, which served as a home for more than 750 youths between 1965 and 2010 when it closed.
