   Services.                  Children deserve to remain safely with their families, whenever possible. VHBG is dedicated to ensuring
                           that all children and families have access to professional community-based care, proven treatment methods
                           and comprehensive service planning. These services are designed to enhance parents’ ability to create a safe,
                           stable and nurturing home environment for their children. Families are partners in this work and their values
                           and beliefs are respected.
                              Our goal is to keep children safely with their families and to decrease the numbers of children entering the
                           child welfare system. More appropriate supports for children, their birth families and extended families, can
                           help to keep children safely together with their families. VHBG is committed to building a system of services to
