ABOUT THE VILLAGE
 
Changing the lives of troubled children and families since 1969

As one of the largest private non-profit providers of residential treatment for children who are wards of the state, we shelter and provide treatment for over 300 children a year in ten Group Homes and 50 Treatment Foster Homes throughout Utah. We also provide Families First, our unique in-home program for families with troubled children, as well as Parenting for Success Classes for the public.

Through all of our programs, we reach into neighborhoods across the country, impacting well over 3,000 lives annually.

Village children come from various backgrounds. Some children, from loving and supportive families, are experiencing a self-destructive, very troubled period. Other children have never known a loving family. In fact, the majority of our children:

  • Are wards of the state
  • Have been the victims of physical or sexual abuse
  • Have not succeeded in typical foster homes, wilderness programs, or psychiatric hospitals
  • Are years behind in school
  • Lack fundamental life skills

We teach our children how to listen, how to take "no" for an answer, how to relate without anger, and how to set and achieve goals. They learn how to succeed in school and in a family setting. Along the way, they learn that they are important and can live responsible lives. The skills we teach even follow them throughout their lives, eventually helping them to succeed in jobs, with their spouses, and with their own children.

Utah Youth Village is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization.
