Violence Intervention and Prevention Center Support Service "People come to the VIP Center for the first time for many reasons. Many want to get involved or learn more about us, and others walk in because they or someone they care about has been impacted by sexual or gender based interpersonal violence. No matter your reason for walking in, expect to be warmly greeted and immediately connected to the confidential resources you are seeking. Each person will be the guide to the services they receive. We won't press for details, force you to make a police report or direct you toward any services you don't want. We will do whatever is necessary to provide you with the support YOU need."
