Radio Show: Youth Villages

Youth Villages provides help for children and young people across the United States who face a wide range of emotional, mental and behavioral problems. We work to find solutions using proven treatment models that strengthen the child’s family and support systems and dramatically improve their long-term success. Youth Villages helped more than 25,000 young people and their families this year.

The Backpack Heroes program collects school supplies for children who have experienced trauma or have a history of emotional or behavioral health issues so they can start the school year equipped to succeed.

“Every year, many of the families we serve get anxious the closer we get to the school year due to costs associated with school supplies,” said Richard Shaw, chief development officer for Youth Villages. “Backpack Heroes are the answer to helping ensure the children we serve have school supplies they need. We are incredibly appreciative to every individual and group who supports us in this effort.”

Individuals, families or groups, such as businesses or church congregations, may participate as Backpack Heroes by visiting
