our story

We are a not-for-profit, community based, youth serving organization.  We want our participants to become alumni who are productive citizens with skills, ethical values, and a drive to reach their own full potential and positively contribute to their peers, families, and community.  


We strive to create a replicable model that is the gold standard for youth programming. 


We build and nurture strong, healthy partnerships with families and our community to ensure HVCC participants have a foundation that allows them to thrive.
