Four Menningers -- Karl, Roy, Phil and Bob -- are shown breaking ground for The Villages, a non-profit group home for dependent, neglected children referred by the Juvenile Justice system and the Child in Need of Care system. Dr. Karl founded the homes, believing that a natural home setting with love and support from cottage parents is the best healing for children who have suffered neglect and abandonment.
