Rating: 5 stars  

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.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

reviewing the cases I have heard as a judge prior to serving as a board member.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

expand the donor base.

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've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Serving as the Board Treasurer.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I have been associated with The Village Network (TVN) for a number of years as a member of its Corporation Board and, more recently, as the Chair of its Governing Board. More than any other social service organization with which I am acquainted, TVN is truly mission and vision driven. It strives to provide its clients with best treatment practices in an environment of respect and care for those whom it serves. Both Board and staff exhibit a care and concern for clients that is evident to those who regularly visit or interact with the agency and to the community at large.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

...through frequent personal testimonials and presentations from current and past clients and the staff members who have assisted them.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

...expand the scope of care provided, both geographically and through expansion of the proven practices employed.

The Village Network has been located in Wayne County since its inception, over 50 years ago. They have always been excellent communiity partners. They collaborate with other agencies, businesses and educational systems. They are active in a multitude of community organizations, often in leadership roles.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the number of children who have successfully completed school and reentered back into their families.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

continue to expand its service into other areas of the state.

I have had the opportunity of meeting a significant number of the Village Network Staff. They are extremely dedicated to the mission of the Village Network which is to promote responsible living and positive change in troubled children through partnerships with families and communities. Jim Miller, the CEO , not only has a good understanding of the services they deliver, has a real understanding of the financial end of the business, and because of his tremendous passion for the kids, it has permeated the entire organization.
In the last two years when other organizations similar to the Village Network have suffered financially or even closed, the Village Network has remained strong financially.

I have personally seen the results that the Village Network has achieved or the last 10 years as a board member, and volunteer.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

None other that being able to afford more children the ability to participate in the programs that the Village Network offers.
