Virginia Home for Boys and Girls (VHBG) is a nonprofit organization that has been serving children in crisis since 1846. In the 1960’s, we stopped operating as an orphanage and now provide transitional living services, specialized education, and therapeutic resources to youth with emotional and behavioral health concerns.

While we may not be able to take you on a tour of our campus right now due to COVID-19, we can still take you on a virtual tour to show you what your donation makes happen 24/7, COVID or not.
