Welcome to The Village

The mission of The Village Family Service Center is to strengthen individuals we serve through regional community behavioral health services. These include counseling for depression, anxiety and other mental health concerns, family therapy, addiction treatment, mentoring, debt management, adoption, and pregnancy options counseling

Since 1891, The Village Family Service Center has helped area children and families improve their lives. The Village was founded as the North Dakota Children's Home Society, a home for orphaned children, and for decades provided a sanctuary for those who often had no other place to go. Today, The Village reaches out to more than 80,000 people every year, and we are constantly adapting our services to meet the needs of modern life.

As the definition of family evolves, so do we. And no matter how you define family, at The Village, you will never go it alone.

The Village Family Service Center is a 501(c)3 organization. Its Tax ID number is 45-0226423. Your donation is tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.
