A Village Youth & Family Service is a community based counseling agency committed to provide children (5-18); adult (19 and up) and families with the highest quality of emotional and mental health care.
We were founded in 2013 in the Richmond Virginia area by Dr. Khidhra S. Poole LCSW, DSW and Jimmy L. Poole out of a desire to provide quality services for children, adults and families in Virginia.
Since our start we have assembled a team of mental health professionals who have the education, experience and training to support families in addressing many of life’s most difficult challenges. At this time we provide three community base services; Intensive In-Home Services, Mental Health Skill Building and Community Crisis Stabilization Services and one residential service; Residential Crisis Stabilization. These services are provide in two different regions, the city of Richmond and the city of Danville.
Whether a child is exhibiting difficult behaviors that is disruptive to the family, an adult is in crisis, an adult is in need of support with managing activities of daily living or the family finds itself in a challenging situation that they are unprepared to handle alone, we provide a diverse set of services designed to provide support and guidance to the whole family.
Our goal is to:
•Stabilize and strengthen individuals and families so that children and adolescents can remain in their homes through our intensive in-home program
•Stabilize and support children and adults who may be experiencing an acute crisis of a psychiatric nature through our Crisis Stabilization program
•Provide adults with individualized training to enable them to achieve and maintain community stability and independence through our Mental Health Skill-building program
