Throughout the breadth of 270-acres of naturally lush and inviting land in Lignum, Virginia, the Childhelp Alice C. Tyler Village (the Village) has been providing a healing home environment for severely abused, neglected, and at-risk children since 1993. Producing a true community atmosphere, the Village houses as many as 67 children ranging in age from 5 to 14 years old. The residents live in small cottages and are grouped by age and treatment needs. The children who make their home at the village are referred to this place of healing by various judicial authorities and child welfare offices after the Department of Social Services takes custody of them. They arrive experiencing severe behavioral and emotional problems as a result of their previous abusive or neglectful situations. For many of these children, the Village and its multidisciplinary team (MDT) are their last hope in avoiding placement at a juvenile correctional facility. It takes a whole village to raise a child. A team of mental health professionals greets each child upon their arrival, equipped to develop an individualized treatment plan tailored to each child’s specific needs. While at the Village, children receive on-site clinical services provided by Childhelp’s MDT under the direction of a staff psychiatrist. The children learn to love themselves and trust others through comprehensive treatment, including psychological, educational, recreational, music, art, occupational, and speech therapy. The dedicated, highly-trained, and passionate staff of therapists, teachers, behavioral health specialists, nurses, physicians, and chaplain work to cultivate trust in children who have known only betrayal, and build self-esteem in the young souls who have rarely been given reason to like themselves. About Childhelp
CEO and Co-Founder SaraO’Meara and President and Co-Founder Yvonne Fedderson started Childhelp in 1959, establishing it as a leading national non-profit organization dedicated to helping victims of child abuse and neglect and at-risk children.
