In February John Turman came to tell our team about The Village. They are having a tremendous impact helping people who need a second chance. We were really impressed with their success and were glad to help. Check them out at www.facebook.com/TheVillageBeTheChange
The Village was founded in January 2008 and is a 501(c)3 non-profit ministry.
The Village now runs a nine to twelve month intensive faith-based residential program that ministers to men and women- living at multiple addresses near downtown Birmingham.
Participants in the residential program come from:
Judges who court order them as an alternative sentence
Parole boards Community Corrections
Self-check in by those who hear of the ministry
Referrals from churches and other local ministries
Now, The Village has broadened its focus to address other needs downtown as well…
