Changing Young Lives Across the Full Spectrum of Care.

The Village offers residential care in Treatment Foster Homes and in Family Homes. The Village offers in-home help through Families First, an intensive program that teaches parents valuable skills. Other programs include Smarter Parenting Web site and in-person classes, proctor homes for refugee children, therapy, and Alpine Academy. Our programs teach troubled children to behave considerately, respectfully and responsibly. We also work with parents in their own homes and help them regain control while teaching youth valuable life skills and behaviors.
