About the Training
The Villages of Indiana, Inc. announces an upcoming Training for Adoption Competency (TAC) cohort to begin on April 19, 2017. TAC is standardized, manualized curriculum developed by The Center for Adoption Support and Education in collaboration with national experts in the field of child welfare, adoption and mental health. TAC is a 12 session (72 hours) competency-based training program followed by a six month case consultation program for licensed mental health clinicians and child welfare workers who provide pre and post-adoption services to prospective adoptive parents, birth parents, adopted persons, and adoptive kinship families. The training engages students in clinical knowledge and skill building. The long term goals of the TAC training are to expand the access of prospective adoptive parents, adopted individuals, adoptive families and kinship families to adoption competent mental health professionals; to provide adoptive families with the mental health services they need to be stable and healthy and reduce rates of adoption disruption and dissolution; and to strengthen the post adoption services offered by the mental health and child welfare systems nationwide.

For additional information on the TAC program, please contact Deborah Jasper, LCSW at 317-775-6500.

2017 Golf Classic & Chopper Drop FORE Kids

2017 Final Golf Header

Thursday, September 28, 2017 

We will spend the day on one of the premier golf courses in Indianapolis … Broadmoor Country Club … and raise money for children who have tragically suffered from child abuse and neglect. Whether you register to play golf, purchase a golf ball for our Poindexter Excavating Chopper Drop FORE Kids, or decide to support this event by becoming a sponsor, you will make a difference in the life of over 3,000 vulnerable children and youth that The Villages serves every day!

No matter how you choose to play, The Wells Fargo Mortgage Charity Golf Outing presented by Westport Homes, Inc. is so much more than just a day on the golf course.  You are also helping to create Brighter Futures for the thousands of vulnerable children, youth and families that The Villages is honored to serve each and every day!  We have always taken our Golf Classic very seriously, as it is our main fundraiser each year … however we need your support more than ever as the crisis in child welfare is increasing at an alarming rate!

Currently more than 24,000 children are in need of services and a safe, loving home. Many of these children were removed from their homes due to abuse and neglect, because of  the “tsunami” of drug abuse. This has been a major factor in the increase in children entering the system because their parents are unable to care for them. Through The Villages team, foster parents, donors like you and a supportive community we are able to provide that “safety net” that these children so desperately need!

Please plan to join us on September 28th for a day you’ll remember … with a fun day of golf and great friends all supporting Indiana’s most vulnerable children!  We’ll have terrific giveaways, auction items to bid on throughout the day, and a chance to win up to $10,000* during the Chopper Drop FORE Kids!  If you can’t make it on the 28th, you can still participate in the Poindexter Excavating Chopper Drop FORE Kids, where up to 2,000 golf balls are being dropped from a helicopter and the closest (8) balls to the hole win a cash prize.

We thank you for partnering with The Villages in taking BOLD Steps for Brighter Futures for our children, youth and families!
