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.

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.

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 (TVN) is a wonderful child-serving organization. Staff members are truly concerned about the welfare and future of each youth in their care. Parents desperate for assistance with their troubled youth often look to the professionalism and expertise of TVN staff for advice and guidance.

I remember meeting one particular youth upon his admittance to The Village Network. He was angry, scared and didn’t trust anyone. He was sure that staff were there to make his life unbearable. After only a couple months, I met him again. There was a light that radiated from him. He smiled and was truly happy. He trusted his counselors and others who rallied to support him. He had made a complete turnaround and was on the path to success. His grades were better than ever, he had a positive outlook and was excited about his future and the prospect of being the first in his family to attend college.

I am happy that The Village Network exists to assist youths in turning their lives around and gaining confidence in themselves and others. I am proud to have them in my community.

The Great!
