Knowledge is Power
When we’re feeling helpless and hopeless it can be empowering to arm ourselves with knowledge. Resources here at The Village are meant for this. While you’re waiting for that appointment or a situation has punched you in the gut, these resources are intended to arm you with knowledge and make you feel less alone. Because one thing for sure is someone has already been there done that so we may as well learn from each other.
If you have some great resources we can add please email The Village. We welcome all contribution that is aligned with our values. This page is for you, me, all of us!
