Other Ways To Give


We are so touched by how many of you have asked, ”what can I do for the kids at Virginia Home for Boys and Girls?” We’ve put together an Amazon wish list with items that would both delight and help our kids manage their time during the COVID-19 pandemic. Using this LINK , you can shop and have the item sent directly to our campus. No personal drop-offs are allowed at this time. The health and welfare of the kids we serve – and our employees — is our top priority and we are processing deliveries per guidelines from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). We appreciate you for thinking of our kids!

Thank you for deciding to be part of our life-changing organization.

Program fees paid for with public dollars only cover a portion of what is needed to provide the trauma-informed care children in crisis require. With nearly 50% of VHBG’s budget supported by philanthropy and other sources of income, your gift helps make a meaningful impact in the daily lives of Virginia’s at-risk children and helps build strong families in our communities.

If you have any questions, please contact Lionel Bacon, VP Philanthropy, at LBacon@vhbg.org or 804-270-6566 ext. 1150. Thank you!
