Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

We support south-central Virginia’s most vulnerable children and help create strong, loving families through our interconnected and evidenced-based programs in order to work towards our mission. Patrick Henry Family Services connects families and children in crisis with care, counseling and community resources needed to find relief, restore hope and ultimately eliminate foster care as we know it. The current data is alarming: In Virginia there are 261,273 children living in poverty, with 128,723 of them living in deep poverty. There are currently 5,600 children in state foster care with an average reunification rate of 26.4%. This is why we do what we do. And our vision is simple: Every child with a thriving family, supported by a faithful community.

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Counseling - Home For Tomorrow

Our counselors take a trauma-specific approach to addressing the unique needs of hurting families and children from hard places. We provide Christian-based, trauma-informed counseling in office, in home, in schools, as well as within "street ministry" (within the downtown community to establish relationships with the homeless population). Although we can bill all commercial insurances, as well as Medicaid and Medicare, our program is based on therapeutic need, not funding.

Population(s) Served

Homes of Hope - provides home and support for single mothers and their children, equipping them with life skills and parent education.

Expanded Families - As a licensed child placement agency, as an alternative to state-run foster care, we bring children into the care of a Christian family. Our goal is to reunite the child and birth family; however, when this is not possible, adoption or permanent legal guardianship gives the opportunity to stability.

Safe Families for Children - Provision of breathing room and practical support for parents or extended-family caregivers in temporary crisis.

Population(s) Served

Virginia's premier trauma-informed camp destination, offering hope, health and healing for vulnerable kids and their families. Our therapeutic and traditional offerings give campers the opportunity to experience nature and physical activity while learning valuable life skills through therapeutically intentional activities.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

OUR MISSION: To build communities of faithful relationships that ensure children are safe, and families are restored.

VISION 30: By 2030, we want to see every child in our region safe in their own family, or in another setting with caregivers supported by a local faith community. This bold initiative launched on June 1, 2020!

At Patrick Henry Family Services, our purpose is simple, but it is far from easy. Our strategy consists of three parts: PREVENTION (60%), DIVERSION (30%) and REPLACEMENT (10%). A visual diagram is attached below for further review.

Prevention uses an early-intervention model to meet the needs of the family and children who are at-risk, using our tools such as CarePortal, Vision 30 initiatives and community outreach. This makes up 60% of our strategic goals.

Diversion is 30 % of our strategic goals and provides the next level of intervention using evidenced-based, trauma-informed programs such as Safe Families and Homes of Hope to assist families in crisis and "divert" to a healthier path, with the intention to heal without needing state foster care placement.

Replacement is the final 10%. In those situations where prevention and diversion were unable to meet the needs, programs we offer such as expanded families and adoption ensure our mission is still carried out for every child with a thriving family.

The aforementioned strategies along with our ultimate Vision 30 platform can only be accomplished with the exceptional programming we offer, as well as the support of communities and partnerships. Our four pillars of service include: Care, Camps, Counseling and Connect.

Patrick Henry Family Services is making an impact, providing resources and relief while observing patterns changing for the good. In 2019, we saw 88% successful reunification of families; 9,036 trauma-informed counseling sessions; 42 regional churches involved in serving children and families; 1,027 children served!
