Creating transformative change for individuals, groups, and families
To build the capacity of people to become more self-aware and self-directed resulting in sustainable positive transformation for all.
A mindset exists within our community whereby self empowerment and self love evolves into optimal community health, and a culture of sharing.
Our programs, services, and initiatives are aimed at developing this mindset, to improve the lives of not only the individual, but their families, and their communities.
Our values and our mission are supported everyday by the great individuals that make up the staff and board of Village Connect.

"The Village Represents Community"
We believe change occurs on three levels: consciousness, behavior, and structure.
Our programs, services, and initiatives are rooted in a belief that within every person there exists a "higher self" that innately seeks to improve and expand one's life circumstance.
Once this "higher self" has been awakened, being connected with an association of like-minded individuals and groups become optimal to sustaining growth & development.
