The Villa is a specialized residential program located in the heart of Ambler, PA for youth who have demonstrated a history of truancy, emotional trauma, family conflict and difficulties in the community.  Their program addresses the physical, cognitive, social, educational and emotional needs of youth so that they can return to their communities feeling more confident in themselves, their skills and their relationships.  All of the youth are placed with The Villa through the Family Court system. These youth have experienced such significant traumas and losses that the work of The Villa can be very challenging, but the successes are incredibly rewarding.

Currently, there are 60 youth ages 12-19 living at The Villa receiving educational, medical and mental health services. Many of these youth attend Upper Dublin School District, as well as engage in a variety of extracurricular activities, such as sports, choir, drill and clubs. Many of the youth also participate in volunteer activities throughout the community and maintain part-time employment prior to being discharged.

Light up a Life, sponsored by Acteon Networks, is very excited to collect donations to help cover the expenses that are recognized as being very important for a child's life experiences, such as school trips, proms, and activities. These can be very expensive for a small family; imagine the cost for a family with 20 children attending at the same time!!! The county provides no additional funding for the extra school functions of the youth who attend Upper Dublin. This leaves The Villa either relying on private donors or deducting funding from other areas of the program so their youth can partake in the same activities as their classmates.

Please help us to raise enough money throughout the holiday season for the youth of The Villa to participate in their school's activities!!
