Stories of Impact

Integrated Care

During the past year, The Village’s Integrated Care program collaborated with 14 pediatric practices throughout Connecticut to provide high-quality in-person and telehealth behavioral health services to more than 500 clients referred by those practices. The Village’s integrated services program partnered with pediatricians to serve clients’ needs seamlessly.

Avon resident Dana Misorski and her husband David have raised more than $30,000 for The Village’s Holiday Giving Tree program, an initiative that helps provide gift cards for families in need to purchase toys, food and other necessities during the holiday season.


What keeps employees here? Making a difference.

“The work is rewarding. The Village is big enough, but small enough.”
