Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
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.
For over 200 years, The Village has been dedicated to building a community of strong, healthy families who protect and nurture children. In 1809, this effort was established and led by a committed group of women, the Hartford Female Beneficent Society. Over the years, the Society merged with organizations such as the Hartford Orphan Asylum, Connecticut Children's Aid Society and Children's Services of Connecticut. Through time there have been changes in the organization's name and services, but the commitment to assist children and families has remained constant.
