Angelica Village works with:
||| Children and Youth Seeking Refuge from War
Youth are welcomed into the community as long-term community members and as the ‘adoptive’ children of partners responsible for their direct care. Children grow up in the community until they are ready to transition fully into adulthood. Children will be supported socially, emotionally, spiritually and physically, as well as with education and generally adjusting to life in the US.
||| Unaccompanied Youth and Families Exiting Homelessness
The community provides a place of refuge and support for three to five individuals and/or families whose circumstances have put them out on the street. Households live in the immediate community for eleven months to two years. During this time, they are provided with comprehensive support including food, shelter, a therapeutic environment, emotional support, childcare, financial support, help finding employment, educational support, and assistance finding and furnishing a permanent home.
||| Individuals Engaged in Healing Work
Individuals who wish to be engaged in this healing work may do so in a myriad of ways- living and/or working in the community, interning in the home, or providing consistent and/or occasional services and general support.
||| Spiritual Renewal, Development and Growth
The community works alongside individuals and groups working spiritually through study, providing meeting space, and conference support. This work is a sustaining source for all who live directly in Angelica Village and is also open to the community at large.
||| Community Activism
The community is a place which welcomes activists to gather for discussion, conferences, organizing, and study groups.
||| Community Garden
The community has a garden where both members of the home and community members come to participate in the gardening process and share meals from our bounty.
||| Community Meals
Every Thursday and Saturday, Angelica Village hosts community meals to bring together all who wish to participate. Through the sharing of a meal, we build connection, support relationships, and participate in the joy of being together.
