The Children's Village

The Children’s Village was founded in 1851, and today, our mission remains very much the same: We work in partnership with families to help society’s most vulnerable children so that they become educationally proficient, economically productive, and socially responsible members of their communities.

We believe that there are three keys to a child’s success: education, work, and lifelong relationships. To that end, we are passionate about education and have high expectations for our students. We help youth develop the attitudes and skills needed to enter the workforce successfully. And we believe that one strong adult relationship is a game changer for a child, particularly one in foster care. We help children develop and nurture life-long relationships with family, friends, and mentors.

I invite you to visit one of our many program sites, learn more about our work, and become part of our family.
