VVIP provides the following services to those affected by domestic violence, dating violence, stalking and sexual assault. Advocates work one-on one with clients providing moral support, assistance with finding affordable housing and suitable employment, public assistance, transportation and accompaniment when seeking medical attention, legal or court services, public education and community outreach. We provide accommodations for up to 42 people, food and supplies. Continued support services to those who have moved out of the catchment area and are no longer in need of direct services but require follow up services. Advocates provide time with each child to concentrate on the development of self esteem, creative conflict resolution techniques, and validation of feelings. We network with law enforcement, social services, child protection, mental health agencies, community action programs, states’ attorneys and other programs. We provide educational opportunities for volunteers, staff and clients to attend trainings, workshops and conferences.
