A healthy family environment is so important for children. I worked in early childhood education for many years, and I’ve seen firsthand just how important families are to the development of a child. Unfortunately, circumstances don’t always allow for a stable family situation for many kids right here in Indianapolis.


But there’s hope.


The Villages of Indiana


That’s why I am so happy an organization like The Villages of Indiana exists. The Villages is Indiana’s largest non-profit child and family services agency. They are “champions for children,” providing foster care and adoption services, healthy families classes, early childhood development services, kinship care, family services, and help for foster kids transitioning out of the system to adulthood. Prevent Child Abuse Indiana and Dads Inc. are also divisions of The Villages. This is a great organization doing so much for kids in Indianapolis – the ones who need our help the most.


How can you help?


There are many ways you can support The Villages of Indiana, but there’s one really exciting opportunity coming up in November. CHAIRish the Children is an event featuring uniquely designed chairs created by local artists. These one-of-a-kind creations will be auctioned off in a silent auction, with all proceeds going to The Villages. You can see all the chairs up for auction online, and you’ll see that in addition to the beautiful chairs, there are some other great items up for grabs, too!




All chairs and other items will available for bidding in an online auction from November 1st at 9:00 a.m. to November 7th at 9:00 p.m.  All items in the auction will continue to be available for bidding at the Friday night event including special live auction items. This is such a fun and creative way to raise money for a great cause – don’t miss your chance to be a part of it!
