Mission: MISSION: The mission of The Village Network is to work in partnerships that will empower youth and their families to build brighter futures. We will be known for our pursuit of excellence, our responsiveness to emerging community needs, and our effective partnerships.

Results: Serve over 1,000 abused and neglected youth per day.

Geographic areas served: The State of Ohio

Programs: The village network is dedicated to improving the behavioral health, well being, and quality of life for youth and their families through integrated treatment foster care programs. In 2014, the village was awarded a grant for the evidenced based practice of nurturing parent groups for parents and their children who are involved in the court because of the parent's substance abuse. Since 2010, tvn has been operating a supervised visitation program through its neighbor to neighbor community foster care program and is the only provider of these services for families involved with the drug court program. The new grant expanded capacity to serve additional families. The organization served 1,285 youth in 280 different treatment foster care homes in 2015.

the village network is dedicated to improving the behavioral health, well being, and quality of life for youth and their families through four integrated residential care programs. The organization served 278 youth in its variety of residential programming - state certified sexually reactive and juvenile sexual offender programs, trauma focused care, and the new transitional living program. The village has three vocational programs to train youth in developing marketable skills: building and grounds maintenance, horticulture and hospitality, to encourage independence and success after discharge.

the village network is dedicated to improving the behavioral health, well being, and quality of life for youth and their families through integrated day treatment and various community based programs. This includes school based programs in wooster, youngstown, steubenville, lancaster and belmont county, with tvn working cooperatively with local school systems to bring comprehensive school based behavioral healthcare to youths most in need. The organization served 1,788 youth in these programs including 296 placements in a diversion program for youth arrested for domestic violence where the youth enter a tvn treatment foster care home instead of the detention center; 215 in a home based treatment program; and 850 in a reception center/evening reporting/shelter care program. The reception center receives arrested youth directly from the juvenile detention center and/or the local police departments. The youth are assessed which determines the prescription of services based on impairment in social, family, or academic functioning and/or mental health diagnosis. The ideal outcome is the safe return of the youth to the home after appropriate family training, education and treatment. Tvn was again awarded a grant to provide clinical mental health and other therapeutic services for individuals and families passing through the knox county juvenile court systems. Tvn was deemed a flagship organization of dr. Bruce perry's child trauma academy in the neurosequential model of therapeutics (nmt) in early 2015. The nmt integrates several core principles of neurodevelopment and traumatology into a comprehensive approach to the child,family, and their broader community.

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.

I have done contract work as a nurse with The Village Network for about 10 years in a variety of locations. The Village staff is competent and caring. They provide a wide range of services for kids with emotional and/or behavioral needs. The kids seem to respond well to the treatment strategies giving them the support they need in thier formative years. I can honestly say that I have never overheard staff saying they hate thier job. This can be a challenge some days when youth are having issues and acting out. It shows that the employees actually care for the kids through thick and thin.

The Village Network is a wonderful organization that repeatedly demonstrates commitment, care, and concern for adolescents and their families. They strive to provide mental health and behavioral services to community youth as well as youth from other areas of Ohio. I was working with a youth that was struggling in a traditional learning environment. I contacted TVN and they were able to place my client in the on-site educational program. My client has achieved better attendance and grades as a result of TVN. The people that work for The Village Network are passionate and dedicated to the youth of today. Their approach is ever-changing to meet the myriad of needs presented to the multifaceted team of professionals. The Village Network is a vital part of the success of the at-risk youth of Wayne and surrounding counties. Kudos to The Village Network

I work in a school district that has an alternative program. There are times when we just don't have enough to serve the needs of the student population that we serve. For the male population, we have had to utilize the Village Network in order to find success not only for the student, but their family as well. They have that extra super structure that we just cannot offer. If it wasn't for the available staff and resources that they have, I feel there would be a lot of lost students who later in life would suffer the consequences of poor choices during their adolescence. It isn't until later and with maturity that most students realize the positive impact the program has on their life. I hope that the Village Network never goes away.
