I know many people who work for The Village Network and are just so happy with its direction and dedication to the staff and to the kids there.

I have been the Village Network teacher at the middle school for a year and a half. What an awesome opportunity to work with individual students and small groups providing hands on, academic learning in a truly caring environment.

The Village Network is an asset to the Wayne County area. I am aware of multiple cases of community youth not finding success in a traditional academic environment but were able to attend and GRADUATE from TVN's educational program. Without TVN, these students would not have graduate and likely have been a drain on the welfare system. TVN stuck by these kids when everyone else had given up. These students now have the opportunity to break the welfare cycle in their families.

My only frustration with TVN is that they don't have an educational program in Wooster for females. The current school is male-only. I would love to see TVN open an alternative education setting that caters to females.

We believe the Village is so important to the youth in our area that we feel strongly in volunteering our time and working to raise funds for them. The understand how to utilize all funds that come their way in a efficient and effective manner. The work they do is priceless in the lives of the young people who come through their program.

I have seen the results of the money we were able to contribute in their greenhouse project which enables these young folks to use their hands to watch something grow and learn from the experiences.

I have been involved with TVN for more than 40 years. It is a excellent organization with skilled staff and appreciative clients and families. It has earned the support of the communities it serves by its willingness to work with local entities as partners and to develop programs which meet the needs of clients.

The Village Network has been able to sustain itself because they provide excellent care, are constantly looking for ways to use their limited resources wisely, and are willing to change their processes to fit the needs of their clientle in an ever changing world of budget cuts and unfunded mandates.

The Great!

I always bring new people to their Celebration Day so they can have a first hand experience in meeting the students and staff, touring the school and residential facilities, and getting a better understanding for their programs and results.

I would add or partner with a career center to provide more hands on skills training so they will have a better opportunity to suceed when they become independent.

The Village Network is the only non-profit that I have been involved with that is truly focused on it's mission and the continual evolution of it. And the programs that exist to fulfill the mission are under strict financial scrutiny. This is a a non-profit with management that measures and understands the financial impacts of their decisions and takes action when and where appropriate to maintain the financial strength of the organization.

I have worked for many organizations over the years, but The Village Network exceeds in the quality of services that are provided. The Administrators and Staff are committed to improving the lives and future of children and families and do so by staying current in available treatment options, quality programming, and hiring staff who are committed to the youth that are in care.
