To support the health and well-being of the communities we serve, Youth Villages is postponing some of our events scheduled in the next month. The KiteTales event scheduled for March 20 has been postponed as part our response to the Coronavirus. We so appreciate your support of the children, families and young people we serve. We hope to reschedule soon.
