As an administrative director of the Ariel Foundation I have toured and been in contact with the local Village Network in Mt. Vernon, Ohio. We gave two grants to this deserving organization in 2010. This wonderful facility and the dedicated people that work inside give a home with loving care while teaching life skills to children that otherwise would "fall through the cracks" with nowhere else to live. We are proud to be a donor of the Village Network of Mt. Vernon and play a small part in building lives and forming future productive citizens in these children.

depending on the statistics you use, in the US, there are approximately9-11 million insedentces fo Child abuse annually. And appropximatley 30% fo those victums will grow up to abuse theri own children.

TVN helps break the cylce of child abuse by helping abused children gain the treatemtn required to build self confidence, self worth, respect for authority, and gain the skills to grow into responsible citizens.

TVN's treatemtn programs are 85- 95% effective adn tehy treat nearly 550 children daily throughout Ohio.

I have worked for The Village Network for the last eighteen years. During this period of time, I have seen many foster children given a safe home, shelter, love, caring, and counseling. They have had experiences that they never had in their bio home. They have gone to the zoo, movies, football and baseball games, and participated in many community activities some of them for the first time. Many of the staff and the foster parents have contributed to the children by paying for their prom and Senior pictures. Encouraging them to continue in their education. Helping them learn independpendent living skills.
The Village Network cares.
