Virlanie’s work is based on key areas we call our “7 Pillars”


Our community-based programs work to prevent children and youth from being at risk or in conflict with the law.


Empower children, youth, and families to break free from the streets.


Children and youth who are at risk are placed and raised in age-age-appropriate homes with a family-oriented environment that fosters a sense of belonging and identity.


Our medical and health programs help children and youth thrive in their physical development.


The children and youth in our care are sent to schools to give them a competitive advantage in securing their future.


We work to reunite children and youth with their families, or shepherd their integration into society.


Virlanie actively promotes and lobbies Congress and policymakers on behalf of children’s rights.
