The Story of Us
Every thought. Every word. Every action.
Our story began during the 2020 COVID 19 Pandemic and Civil Rights Movement. We are a group of parents and professionals, watching the world respond to the effects of global traumatic events. And what we realize is-we all need each other. We realize that no one thrives in isolation and that we need to find new ways to connect, to commune, and seek support. We envision building a world where all people can live and thrive in healthy, connected relationships. And that is how Shape Our Village was born. We welcome you into this community with open arms. We hope you feel known, appreciated, and accepted for who you are. We hope to help you develop the tools to become your best self and create a life of fullness for yourself, your family, and your world.
We use art and science to intentionally shape a connected and thriving village.
We use lessons from the past, art, and science to shape a village that allows for individual, collective, and environmental wellness. We support healthy relationships in an inclusive and equitable community.

“One of my concerns about parent engagement and education is that parents may tell me things that are outside my scope. This helps by giving me the tools to build a relationship and respond when parent concerns are outside my scope. I feel comfortable using this and it reduces the anxiety that comes with building relationships with clients and families.” -BCBA
