Group Care and Independent Living

Group Care and Independent Living
VHBG is licensed by the Department of Social Services and aims to create the most natural environment for our youth that still provides them with the supports they need to overcome past trauma, build relationships, and work on transitioning to a more permanent environment. We work directly with the child’s agency that placed them with us (typically the city or county department of social services) to make decisions that are in their best interest. Youth are able to leave our campus to spend time with their families, attend summer camps, gain employment, and participate in other extracurricular activities. We have been able to give the youth who come here the opportunity to have a childhood and experience the joy in life.

“I just wanted to say thank you for all you did for James while he was in your care. He progressed more at VHBG than he has in any other placement for a very long time and I’m sure that is due in no small part to the efforts you and the rest of the staff put in. Please share my thanks with everyone. He is doing well in his current foster home and making plans for when he turns 18.”
