Youth Villages receives $7.4 million Grant from Microsoft


Tennessee is first to expand comprehensive help to all former foster youth. Through a public-private partnership with Youth Villages, Tennessee’s Department of Children’s Services will offer YVLifeSet to the more than 1,000 young people who turn 18 in state custody each year. Youth Villages is highlighted as a model organization in a new book by charity expert Ken Stern, “With Charity for All: Why Charities Are Failing and a Better Way to Give.” Microsoft grants more than $7.4 million in software and technology to Youth Villages allowing improvements in both internal and external communication systems.
