Learn More About Our Programs
Village of Promise welcomes any child needing an emotional rest from the isolation and trauma suffered when separated from a parent. Young people will find positive, caring adult mentors who are listening ears to their dreams and fears and give support and unconditional care to each child. Children from age 11 through post-high school graduation are given a safe place and encouragement through programs designed to empower them to become good citizens, excel in school, and live healthy lives. Village of Promise delivers two programs each month:
Annually, a five-day summer camp retreat includes self-growth activities and fun. A child learns coping skills and how to manage their responses to complex family experiences. Alumni of the program meet to develop strategies for successful transitions to independent living and to build a positive future.
