Steven Tyler opens Janie’s House at Youth Villages’ Inner Harbour Campus
Janie’s House was made possible by the partnership between Youth Villages and Tyler’s philanthropic organization, Janie’s Fund, which was inspired by the 1989 Aerosmith hit, “Janie’s Got A Gun.” The center’s “scarf-cutting” and grand opening took place Dec. 6, and included Tyler, young women from our program, community leaders and donors. Our therapeutic drumming participants welcomed attendees with a performance along with Tyler.
Janie’s House has accommodations for up to 30 girls annually with access to 24-hour care and therapeutic support. The interior was designed with guidance from Tyler, down to the chosen quotes on the walls, colors and overall theme.
Give your time, talents, and love for youth in various ways such as volunteering at a YV event, mentoring a young person, or even running a race.
