Imagine a day when all children are living in safe and stable homes.

Unfortunately, this is not the reality for thousands of children currently in need of our help.

The Village, founded in 1809, was one of the first agencies in the country to provide homes for neglected children. Over 200 years later, The Village continues to help vulnerable children and at-risk families throughout the Greater Hartford region – over 8,000 each year.

Our mission is “to build a community of strong, healthy families who protect and nurture children.”

We fulfill this mission by providing a full range of behavioral health treatment and support services for children, families and adults – including parenting education classes, outpatient mental health therapy, substance abuse treatment, and foster care and adoption – which help them achieve real and meaningful change in their lives.

Our 400 professional staff members include child psychologists, clinicians, social workers and parent educators. We operate out of our beautiful original campus at 1680 Albany Avenue in Hartford, the former Trolley Barn building at 331 Wethersfield Avenue, the former Shelter for Women at Gray Lodge at 105 Spring Street, our programs in several schools in the City of Hartford, and offices in other towns throughout Greater Hartford, including Manchester, Meriden, Middletown, and Bloomfield.
