Our team members are role models. We provide therapeutic care for boys and girls in crisis. Our Village is the children’s home and is never operated like an institution. We see remarkable results in our children that range from a single smile to lifelong inspiration. We consider all referrals and encourage families to tour the campus and talk with our staff to find out how the Village can help your child.
