Children's Village Family Services VISTA
Children’s Village is a residential home for children, birth to 18, who have been abused, neglected or are in a severe family crisis. Children come into care through a placement by the Department of Health and Welfare (DHW), police sheltering or are privately placed by their parents. Approximately ½ of the placements come from DHW and ½ are privately placed by the children’s parents. Private placements are typically the result of a severe family crisis, such as homelessness, domestic violence, substance abuse and/or a mental health crisis. Care can be short term, with a minimum of 24-hours, or long-term, dependent upon the stability and safety of the family’s home and/or the completion of the parent plan put into place by the State.
