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.
Well, it just seems to be that kind of year when nothing goes as originally planned. We were so excited and ready to host you tomorrow at The Diamond for Family Night in the Outfield, but the forecasted rain has caused us to postpone this important fundraiser to Sunday, November 1. Same time, same place, same dinner, same movie, same great cause! If the new date doesn’t work for you we can refund your ticket, or please consider giving your ticket to a friend or turning it into a donation. Ticket sales are extended through 10/31. Thank you so much for your support. We hope to see you on November 1! Click here for tickets.
Note: all staff, students, and visitors will be screened daily upon arrival to campus and John G. Wood School
for COVID 19 symptoms.
As the spread of Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) evolves, be assured that VHBG leadership is making sure we continue to provide high-quality care to the youth we serve. The safety and well-being of our youth, their families and guardians, our staff, and the community are always central to our mission. We are meeting daily to plan and oversee VHBG’s operations in light of this situation. We are following guidelines from both the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Virginia Department of Health (VDH). We communicate as needed with the Henrico County Health Department. If you are interested in learning how to communicate with youth about the Coronavirus or any serious issue, click this link to the Child Mind Institute. We think it’s helpful.
