Youth Villages is a private nonprofit organization dedicated to helping children and young people across the United States who face a wide range of emotional, mental and behavioral problems. At Youth Villages they work to find solutions using proven treatment models that strengthen the child’s family and support systems and dramatically improve their-long term success. They help more than 26,000 children and families each year.
We were introduced to Youth Villages through a community member in Nashville mentioning to us that a non-profit in Nashville was in need of some assistance around their Salesforce Org. Youth Villages currently uses Salesforce to track donors and to help them process their Holiday Heroes program that they run during Christmas to provide gifts to the children and youth in their programs. After meeting with their Director of Development and Assistant Director we wanted to help more. In 2018 we hosted one of the group homes’ Holiday Parties and we fell in love with the kids. This year our Director wanted to do more and has put together a Lunch & Learn hosted every other month to provide the kids lunch with a member of the community that can tell them more about how they worked to find success in their lives not just in their career. We at Alternative Solutions believe that helping the youth of our community strengths our values and commitment to doing better and more.
