Throughout the breadth of 270-acres of naturally lush and inviting land in Lignum, Virginia, the Childhelp Alice C. Tyler Village (the Village) has been providing a healing home environment for severely abused, neglected, and at-risk children since 1993. Producing a true community atmosphere, the Village houses as many as 67 children ranging in age from 5 to 14 years old. The residents live in small cottages and are grouped by age and treatment needs. The children who make their home at the village are referred to this place of healing by various judicial authorities and child welfare offices after the Department of Social Services takes custody of them. For many of these children, the Village and its multidisciplinary team (MDT) are their last hope in avoiding placement at a juvenile correctional facility.  While at the Village, children receive on-site clinical services provided by Childhelp’s MDT under the direction of a staff psychiatrist. The children learn to love themselves and trust others through comprehensive treatment, including psychological, educational, recreational, music, art, occupational, and speech therapy.


The Childhelp National Child Abuse Hotline, 1-800-4-A-CHILD®, operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and receives calls from throughout the United States, Canada, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico and Guam. Childhelp’s programs and services also include residential treatment services (villages); children’s advocacy centers; therapeutic foster care; group homes and child abuse prevention, education and training. Childhelp also created the National Day of Hope® that mobilizes people across America to join the fight against child abuse.
