Our Success Is Demonstrated By Empowered Individuals And Families On Their Journey To Growth And Recovery

As a performance based, outcome driven organization, The Village Network has a strong focus on using data to make informed decisions about our programs and services.  Outcomes are measured regularly to ensure service standards and program goals are being executed.  The following success metrics summarize data from the fiscal year 2017.

“In order to be successful, we need our kids, their families, our investors, and the community at large to trust that we will never give up on a child – and we don’t.”

High Risk Incidents

Restraints, largely in residential treatment, are considered particularly high risk. Restraints are only permitted for significantly harmful or potentially harmful behavior and are of great concern. Each restraint is followed by a conversation held between the staff and an administrator to discuss the incident; this is referred to as witnessing. In addition, a de-briefing of both the youth and staff who were involved occurs. The primary goal of every witnessing and debriefing is for all persons involved to learn how to prevent future incidents.

When reviewing incident reports, it should be highlighted that the majority of youth in care of The Village Network are not involved in high-risk incidents. The following charts summarize our data focusing on youth who were not involved in such incidents during FY16.
