After children complete their care at Eagle House—The Village’s psychiatric residential treatment facility—many transition to foster care. During a surging mental health crisis, amid the pandemic, this transition was harder than ever.
Backed by an extensive network of dedicated foster parents, and as the state’s largest foster care provider—covering Hartford, Manchester and New Britain—The Village foster care team works hard in tandem with clinical staff at Eagle House to ensure children are placed in homes that meet their individual needs and provide them with safety and stability so they can grow and thrive.
Our kids have experienced a lot of trauma. A lot of our kids have been moved from place to place and have had many different caregivers.
I want this so badly for even one child. If I could just work two more hours and a child has a home to go to, then it’s worth it.
