About Village Life

History and Mission

    Village Life Company is a educational and interfaith not-for-profit corporation founded in early 1996 to create content for social justice-related Websites.

    The organization's first project was the Village Life Online Magazine, launched on the Web in 1996 as the first exclusively online Christian social justice news magazine.

    Funded by a grant from the former Bauman Bible Telecasts of Washington, D.C., it attempted to "provide objective clarity and a sense of hope to the news and provide an environment that encourages the open discussion of issues of interest to people of faith."

    The initial grant for the site was exhausted by mid-1997 and site-specific news feature reporting was suspended at that time. An attempt to report faith-based disaster response news in Village Life, provided background and context for a study completed later that year for the domestic disaster roundtable of Church World Service. Recommendations from that study lead to the creation of the award-winning Disaster News Network, which was produced by Village Life Company from 1998 through 2014. An attempt to revitalize the network following the 2017 hurricanes was not successful.

    In 2016, building on two decades of research about public violence resilience, Village Life Company created the Center for Public Violence Recovery.

    The corporation also provides consultative services, Website support, and digital strategy workshops for social justice and religious nonprofits.
