The Children’s Village is pleased to announce that its merger with Inwood House, a 186-year-old New York City charity specializing in pregnant and parenting teens and pregnancy prevention, was finalized December 31, 2016. “We are delighted to welcome the Inwood House staff and programs into the CV family,” said Jeremy More Info
“Proud of Who I Have Become”
“Filmmaking is the one thing that is stronger than the pull for money or nice clothes. It’s the one thing that I truly, passionately want to work at. Finding this motivation transformed me into the man I am today,” Vaughan told the crowd. He continued, “Thanks to CV, I am standing before you proud of who I have become. I don’t own a camera, I don’t have an apartment, and I
want more than anything to go to college to study filmmaking, but my story already has a happy ending. I found my passion, I found a reason to wake up each morning and work hard.”
His speech was so moving that Jamie Marley, a CV trustee, personally collected funds to purchase Vaughan his first camera and all of the equipment he could wish for. Now, Vaughan can pursue his films and shoot whenever the inspiration strikes. He plans to give back to CV by developing a PSA to recruit foster parents. Then he’ll work on a portfolio to help him get into
college to study filmmaking. With help from his CV friends, he will make his dream come true.
