In September 2000, Kimberly and Linda, as well as several other parents of children with disabilities, founded The Village Learning Center, Inc (dba Village Learning & Achievement Center) as a 501(c) 3 non-profit corporation. A monetary commitment was made by both Kimberly and Linda, the organization was created, and the passion to provide quality programs and services to individuals with disabilities was born. The word “village” was chosen because they realized that the organization’s success depended upon the support of their community. They knew that it would take a village to make their vision a reality.
The Village at Stoney Glen provides independent living opportunities in a beautiful residential setting for adults with disabilities. It is designed for individuals who are taking a major step on the road to independence, moving out of their family home for the first time. The staff offers support and training in a home-like setting to individuals who have basic self-care skills. Family interaction and participation are welcomed as our residents transition from the family home to greater independence while continuing to live, work, and worship in their own community.
