Youth Villages celebrates a fantastic first year at the Inner Harbour Campus
We’re all excited to mark our first anniversary of the Youth Villages and Inner Harbour merger. Most of all, we’re proud to be able to serve more young people.
Our merger has allowed children from throughout the region to receive residential help when necessary at Inner Harbour, closer to their homes and families. The campus is a key part of two new contracts allowing us to expand our Intercept intensive in-home services to more children and families in the five-county metro Atlanta area.
Since the merger, Inner Harbour has gone and continues to go through myriad renovations to enhance the environment for young people, staff and guests alike.
We’ve made more than $3 million in enhancements to the campus, transforming buildings to provide more open, light-filled spaces for children and staff.
As a result of this continuum of care, we hope to expand our in-home services statewide, making Intercept available to more children and families who need help.
Read about Darrell, who recently was reunited with a father he barely knew. His story is one of perseverance and compassion, and makes us all aware that family has no time limit.
In addition, read about our valuable volunteers at Inner Harbour. AmeriCorps has partnered with Inner Harbour for the past decade, helping young people at the school. Also, read about education innovations at our Inner Harbour school.
The Inner Harbour school strives to help young people during their stay at the campus to achieve success in academic settings, and it accomplishes that through innovative education techniques focused on incorporating cooperation and community service with a hands-on approach to helping young people understand and learn.
As always, thanks for your support of Youth Villages and the children and families we help.
