An Introduction to The Villages of Indiana

“Championing Families for Children” is the core of The Villages of Indiana’s mission. Founded in 1978 by Dr. Karl Menninger, The Villages’ services embody a foundational premise that children grow, develop, and flourish best in a family!

The Villages’ hope is, always, that a child can be nurtured and loved by his or her own family. If this is not possible, our organization actively supports and sustains grandparents and kinship caregivers. When relatives aren’t available, The Villages has dedicated well-trained foster and adoptive families to nurture the child in need. Additionally, The Villages provides numerous services and programs that strengthen families and help parents be the best they can be for their children. Our organization also has child abuse and neglect prevention services available.

Thank you for visiting our “Friends of The Villages” blog! Here you will learn more about our agency and how you can get involved. The Villages’ need for volunteer assistance is endless…stay tuned to learn more about how you can be a CHAMPION for a CHILD!
