Message from Our Co-Founders

When Irma and I founded The Village Family Services, our hope was to not only combine expertise with compassion, but to create services for those who need it most, holding fast to our ideals of fostering hope, transforming lives, and securing futures.

Our work in the San Fernando & Santa Clarita Valleys and the Greater Los Angeles communities on behalf of the most at risk among us – the children, youth, and families – is more vital than ever these days.

You might wonder, how does The Village continue to be relevant in today’s challenging environment? The answer is in our people – employees, donors, supporters, and volunteers – who are deeply committed to continuing in our efforts to assist those we serve with an emphasis on a client-centered, culturally sensitive, and evidence-based model of care.

As we look ahead, our core goals remain steadfast: meeting the needs of our underserved children, youth, adults, and families; continuing in our efforts to innovate and grow to take on the challenges brought on by the epidemic of homelessness; and providing hope and healing to the most fragile members of our community with exceptional care.

We hope you’ll join us in celebrating all that we have accomplished, and look ahead with us towards all that can yet be achieved, together.
