||Since our inception in 1846, VHBG has helped thousands of children with emotional and behavioral health needs from across Virginia. We offer three core program areas: 1) group care services for youth ages 11-17 and an independent living arrangement for youth ages 17-21, 2) specialized K-12 education, and 3) therapeutic resources. Nestled in a park-like setting, our 30+ acre campus includes a fellowship hall and recreational facilities (a gymnasium, playing fields, outdoor swimming pool, an indoor recreation room with weight equipment and game tables). Because most of the children we serve have faced some sort of trauma in their young lives, they often have social, emotional, behavioral, and academic barriers to success. Whether the child lives on campus or just spends the daytime with us, VHBG looks and feels like the neighborhood you’d want to live in. Our family atmosphere is important to help kids heal and grow to become successful adults.
