PARENT VILLAGES

Transforming Lives, Two Generations at a Time

Parent Villages partners with organizations to provide a two-generational approach to serving families. This enables us to provide support to both children and adults to close the opportunity and belief gaps which have negatively impacted the educational attainment and livelihoods of our families.

“Together, we can create a brighter, more equitable future for all, where every child and every family can thrive.”

The importance of Two-Generational Services

Our mission is to build bridges between parents, youth, advocates, community leaders, and educators to close the opportunity gap and improve the quality of life for ALL children. We prioritize the growing needs of black and Hispanic families in Greater Springfield affected by violence. Village Builders spearheads our two-generational programming, serving the whole family, inclusive of children and their caregivers/parents through interactive workshops and an array of family engagement activities.

“It’s a commitment to providing opportunities, resources, and mentorship for both parents and children.”

PV commits to providing opportunities, resources, and mentorship for both parents and children.

PARENT VILLAGES

Our work is not limited to the present; it's an investment in the future

At Parent Villages, we’re huge believers in the power of education. That’s why each year, we love to celebrate graduating high school seniors who are academically focused but also actively involved in making their community a better place. We also love to recognize amazing adults who have had a positive impact on youths’ lives, in the community, and academically.
