MOUNT VERNON, Ohio – In partnership with the Knox County Commissioners and the Knox County Department of Job and Family Services, The Village Network’s new Knox County Family & Children’s Resource Center is now complete!
To celebrate, The Village Network will hold a special ribbon-cutting ceremony and open house for the new Center on Wednesday, June 15 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the new Knox County Family & Children’s Resource Center, 17606 Coshocton Road, Mount Vernon. The ceremony will begin at 11:15 a.m. Guided tours and lunch will also be provided.
Located behind the Children’s Resource Center residential facility, the new Knox County Family & Children’s Resource Center will provide the additional space needed to properly serve the community, including:
- Additional clinical space focused on providing family therapy, including a one-way mirror for observational capacity during Parent-Child interaction Therapy (PC-IT).
- Multi-Purpose Room for training and NMT-framed physical activity;
- Sensory Integration Room – offering a multisensory experience assisting children whose sensory integration capacity has been compromised due to trauma;
- Two NME-trained classrooms managed and staffed by the East Central Ohio Educational Service Center.
The Village Network’s team has been providing trauma education, treatment foster care and behavioral health services to the Knox County community for over 20 years.
