“My dream is that we will be able to grow our endowment to the point that it will support the financial needs of the organization and we can spend less time on fundraising and more time facilitating the healing process that these little guys so desperately need and deserve,” CEO Mark Wilson.
CEO Mark Wilson and the entire staff at the Children’s Village care so deeply about their mission and it is evident in everything their organization does. The Children’s Village is a nonprofit dedicated to providing a “safe haven from abuse, neglect or severe family crisis.”
One thing Wilson learned while initially becoming a part of this organization is sadly just how prevalent child abuse is. “Neglect and severe family crisis is in our community… it is critical to have a resource like the Children’s Village.”
The Children’s Village measures their success on the founders initial promosies from 28 years prior of making sure that; siblings stay together, children can remain in their original schools, and that every child can stay as long as they need.
They are also now a trauma informed care facility that will enable the Children’s Village to “create a more therapeutic environment and better facilitate the healing process.” This change has evolved the Children’s Village to care for children “with more acute needs that were previously being turned away for behavioral problems,” Wilson says.
An up and coming project the Children's Village is working on is a plan to start construction for a counseling and education center that will “enable us to provide additional individual and family counseling as well as parent education.”
