Theory of Change
Our network is developing a community of practice that encourages collective learning. Our hope is to develop a network that supports existing community efforts and cultivates stronger connections between community residents and community agencies in order to improve the community systems (social processes, resources, and social arrangements). We also strive to build alliances with a diversity of resources and sectors to support social change. Improving community systems will support setting-level improvements that enhance family and community protective factors and ultimately prevent and mitigate childhood adversities and promote optimal wellbeing.
Mission: Vital Village is a network of residents and agencies committed to maximizing child, family, and community wellbeing.
Vision: To cultivate collective responsibility for all children.
