“I was looking at a prison sentence. That’s where I would have ended up if I hadn’t come here. Eagle Village is in the business of changing lives. I know that for a fact because I’m one of those whose life was changed.”

Each of us, at a time in our life, realizes that we need a “place.” Not necessarily a location as much as “place” that provides special support in a specific time of need. For some it is family trauma, emotional upheaval or a medical crisis. I have recently come to appreciate the power of a place during a family medical crisis. After a series of medical mazes that were frightening, we found a place where we were embraced and understood individually and as a whole. What a blessing and relief to have been found and helped and cared for. Eagle Village is a powerful place. Young people who are faced with many obstacles are given a safe place to heal their hurts and realize their full potential. This powerful place has a successful legacy of caring. We have identified the needs to make Eagle Village become an even more powerful place for children and families for the next 40 years. Please help us in the care and keeping of this place where we will continue to Change Tomorrow Together.
Please join me in helping to change lives,
