Young Friends of theVillage




TheVillage Young Friends group was formed in early 2013 in conjunction with our annual fundraising event Art Works.  Their current focus is on supporting the running program of our clients in the Residential Treatment Program.  Young Friends are raising funds for the program and encouraging the girls at 5K events in the community.
