On any given day there are more than 14,000 children in the State of Georgia’s foster care system. Without consistent support and positive life-changing experiences, these children are continually at risk and particularly susceptible to “falling through the cracks” of the typical foster system, no matter how well intention-ed. Our mission is to positively and permanently change the lives of these children. We effectively become the proverbial “caulk” for those children most vulnerable to “falling through the cracks.” Read More
Serial foster children often lack the individual attention and transformational experiences that a stable environment provides. THE Village serves as an orchestra-tor of programs and services that provide exposure and child development opportunities to children and youth in long-term foster care, serving them through adulthood.

THE Village’s residential summer camp serves as a therapeutic outlet for foster children. It affords them a week of overnight camping and an opportunity to simply “be a child,”
“We are impressed by the amount of care you have shown for the children in our community. Neighbor To Family is pleased to build a long lasting relationship with The Village’s Summer Camp for Children.”
“This letter is to confirm the high esteem with which the Gwinnett Department of Family and Children Services holds the Village Summer Camp. Gwinnett DFCS was first introduced to this fantastic camp in the summer of 2007. Thank you for considering joining forces with outstanding non-profit organization.”
“Our Children have been blessed to attend the camp, and it is my sincere hope that we will continue to serve our children for years to come. The Village staff is professional and caring for our kids. In this time, in our children’s lives; thank the staff for always being sensitive to and responding to the needs of DeKalb County’s Children… We thank The Village Summer Camp for their virtuous heart.”
“Neighbor to Family has had the pleasure of collaborating with the Atlanta Children’s Foundation and The Village kids camp during the summer. This non-profit organization has been nothing short of great in sharing their resources with our children both in the summer with their camp and during the holiday season. It is my hope that they will continue offering their services to children in Georgia for many years to come.”
“The relationship between The Village Summer Camp and Fulton County DFCS remains strong and provides resources to the children served under the Department of Family and Children’s Services. This has proven to be a meaningful experience for the children by allowing them to learn and enhance skills that they can use throughout their lives.”
