2017 Gala Lookback – “It Takes a Village”


Thank you for making last year’s 21st Anniversary Gala such a smashing success.

Our 2017 Gala featured an appeal to fund our Strengthening Families Initiatives – three training programs that give families the skills and resilience to live fuller, more connected lives in our community.

Our 2017 Gala presentation featured the three minute video — “It Takes a Village” — celebrating VIA’s commitment to teaching children, strengthening families, and building a more humane and inclusive community.  Watch it here:
