It Takes a Village

It Takes a Village was awarded a $1,000 grant for purposes of applying for a 501c3 certification. It Takes a Village is focused on creating an incentive-based, free village store in Peoria Public Schools to assist with the fundamental needs of students, their caregivers, and teaching personnel. They strive to bring out the best in our youth through a community-based support system. The program’s vision is the idea that whole community is greater than the sum of its parts: Together we can make a difference.
