What Does It Feel Like To Be Invisible?

How would you feel if you were displaced, with no stable home and no one to protect, encourage, or support you? Many of the children in foster care come from minority backgrounds and are victims of a series of foster care placements and experiences. This repeated movement not only separates siblings, but often crosses multiple county lines and cultures. Without the extended support of a family, children in foster care face enormous challenges in building successful lives.

Atlanta Children’s Foundation – Working Towards Solutions

Residential &
Continuum of Care

Nestled in the North Georgia Mountains, THE Village’s 250-acre campus offers a safe and stable environment, providing a continuum of care, experiential learning, and therapeutic programming for children and youth, 6-21 years of age.

Crisis Card Program

With help from sponsors such as the National Basketball Association, the Atlanta Hawks, and InComm, the Crisis Card Program provides aid to young adults who’ve aged out of the foster care system, providing food, clothing, and emergency shelter. The Crisis Card offers former foster youth a resource when they have nowhere else to turn.

Entrepreneurial Training
& Development

Through a collaborative partnership with Youth Entrepreneurs (YE), foster youth join together to meet their common economic, social, and cultural needs. YE Village will equip these resilient young people with the values and vision to pursue their dreams through “hands-on experience” in an inspiring environment.
