Eagle Village at Mecosta County Match Day
We are excited to announce that Eagle Village will be at the Mecosta County Community Foundation's Match Day for the first time this year. *
Eagle Village will be on-site at the Holiday Inn in Big Rapids for the Match Day event to encourage current and new donors to donate into this fund for a match opportunity of up to 50%.
Please stop by the Holiday Inn on November 19 from 11am to 6pm to donate to the Eagle Village Fund through the Mecosta County Community Foundation.
*Last year, Isabella Bank donated the full $10,000 required for Eagle Village to start a fund at the Foundation.

Scholarships for Intervention Services
Do you know a family struggling with a teenager’s behavior? Have you talked to parents at the end of their ropes with the lack of communication and dysfunction within their own families?
Eagle Village has programs designed just for those families and there are funds available to help with the cost.
Intervention Services like Youth Challenge Weekends and Family Challenge Weekends as well as our 28-day Changing Lanes program are available at Eagle Village for any family in Michigan. We also have Summer Camps which just ended for 2013 but will be available again in 2014.
Specifically, scholarship dollars toward these programs are available to families in the following counties:
These funds are provided by the Mecosta Area Community Foundation, Fremont Area Community Foundation, The Gerber Foundation, Midland Area Community Foundation, Mt. Pleasant Area Community Foundation and the Cadillac Area Community Foundation.
Additionally, there are other scholarship opportunities for residents in any Michigan county provided by donations to the Eagle Village Scholarship Fund.
Please share this information with any family who could benefit from these services or agencies in your area who share with their clients. One of our biggest challenges is reaching families within the community who may need help. Referrals and sharing of information by our friends has become so valuable. Thank you for helping us reach hurting families.
