About Violence Intervention Program

VIP empowers survivors to take back their lives—on their terms.

Violence Intervention Program, Inc. (VIP) is a community based non-profit organization dedicated to the eradication of domestic and intimate partner violence. Established in 1984 as an East Harlem initiative, VIP fills a gap in services to Latina survivors and their children in a culturally competent environment that is supportive, non-judgmental, and respects each victim’s right to self-determination. 

Our mission is to lead Latina victims of domestic violence to safety, empower them to live free of violence and reach and sustain their full potential.  We pursue our mission by raising community awareness, engaging in activism and providing culturally competent services.
