Sixteen years ago, Julie and Rusty Bulloch and their 9-year-old daughter and 7-year-old son opened their home to Jenna, a teenage girl from their community who wanted to run away from home. Jenna was the first of 29 troubled teenagers the Bullochs have welcomed over the years. Allowing up to two teens at a time to stay on their Lakeland, Florida ranch for anywhere from nine months to a year and a half, the Bullochs have provided a safe haven and structured parental environment to area kids who need it most. "It was just like an extension of our family," says Julie, adding that the family has never received any government aid for their services. "My husband hunts, and we raise our vegetables and are frugal, so another mouth to feed wasn't that big a deal." The Bullochs abide by a strict "nothing in life is free" mentality. Boarders are supplied with a room and basic supplies, but they must work either on the family farm or at Julie's bounce house company for spending money. As for their two biological children, Julie says that growing up with boarders has fostered a sense of compassion and an appreciation for family. "It's been a roller coaster ride,” she says. “I think we've been blessed as much as the kids have been blessed with the relationships we've had over the years.” A reality show about Julie and Rusty called Bulloch Family Ranch will air on GMC TV (formerly the Gospel Music Channel) this summer.
