TheVillage specializes in working with children and adolescents who have experienced loss, separation, placement, trauma, and physical and sexual abuse. If birth families are unable to make the changes needed to keep their children safe within a federally mandated timeline, the most desirable option is adoption.

Experienced social workers assist families in their search to provide a “forever family” to a child. Case management services are provided once placement occurs to ensure the success of the family prior to finalization.

Families take a 10-week intensive therapeutic curriculum that helps the child and the adoptive family understand issues related to placement, including the impact of abuse, neglect, separation and trauma, and issues related to permanency, including adoption. Post Permanency Services include case advocacy services, respite services, and support groups.
