Situated on 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. They arrive experiencing severe behavioral and emotional problems as a result of their previous abusive or neglectful situations. For many of these children, the Village and its multidisciplinary team (MDT) are their last hope in avoiding placement at a juvenile correctional facility.
