While we can’t convene in person right now, Village Home has continued to support our community by responding early and quickly to the sudden shift from in-person classes and community by providing virtual learning and connection. Staff and teachers worked diligently for 3 weeks without their own spring breaks to create an online schedule, get families registered, and train teachers in online technology and protocols.
 
We have successfully sustained the 60 online classes developed by dedicated Village Home instructors, and the good news is that the kids are engaged in the new virtual format. Though we have had to cancel all spring programming we are working on a virtual Talent Show and live Completion Ceremony with a virtual contingency plan. Everyone is doing the best they can under the circumstances based on so many unknowns, and so are we.
 
Sixty online classes represent only 30% of our typical spring schedule of 200+ classes and activities which sustain our spring term and annual budget: We have lost 70% of our revenue this spring term. Thankfully we received a PPP loan to maintain some wages. We are certainly hoping for in-person fall classes, but we also know that we have to remain flexible because the future is uncertain. We ask that our Village Home families

remain flexible and devoted during this time, too.
 
We miss you. Thank you for being part of our community and sticking with Village Home during this difficult time.
 
Sincerely,
 
Lori Walker, Executive Director

Village Home depends on tax-deductible contributions to provide families engaging, high-quality educational programs. Since 2002 we have been on the cutting-edge of what works in education by keeping the family at the center of the equation, and by providing a learning environment that inspires intrinsic-motivation to be a life-long learner. Tuition and fees does not cover the actual cost to deliver innovative education in our unique setting. Therefore we rely on the generosity of donors to fill that gap.

Help sustain Village Home’s vibrant learning community through this pandemic by making a tax-deductible contribution to Village Home. 70% of your contribution directly benefits the learner in the classroom. A contribution of any amount is appreciated.
