what-is-the-vital-village-networkVital Village is a network of residents and organizations committed to maximizing child, family, and community well-being. Our place-based, community engagement network mobilizes collective investment from residents, community organizations and institutions to seed scalable and sustainable community change around child protection and promoting healthy social and emotional development in early childhood.
Erica Pike, MA & Renée Boynton-Jarrett,MD,ScD, discuss how the Vital Village Network uses a collective impact approach to supporting a deeper collaboration among educators, clinicians, social service providers, legal advocates and residents. This has been shown to strengthen the economic security of a community and to help understand the far reaching consequences of early life adversities and toxic stressors on child development and health.
