August 11, 2010 The Children’s Village is a charitable institute founded in 1851 that helps families struggling to become productive, independent citizens. They work on the basis that there are four keys to success that include education, work, lifelong relationships and social responsibility. They work with children to develop the attitudes and skills to help them to enter the workforce and to begin career-oriented employment. During the 2008-2009 year, they serviced 492 youths at residential schools, 893 families through the family preservation services and 647 youths in shelters and short term residential facilities. Certainly, donations and volunteering by people like Dr. Lawrence Jaeger help The Children’s Village to fulfill its mission and to get its work done to help people in need.
