COVID-19 VSP Office Update
To help reduce the spread of the coronavirus, the Victim Service Program staff is working reduced hours in the office. Please note, we require appointments for face to face meetings. As an alternative, the VSP staff is happy to meet with you remotely via a HIPAA compliant ZOOM meeting.
Our advocates will do everything possible to assist victims and survivors during the partial office closure. However, in keeping with safe practices regarding the COVID-19 health threat, some services may be temporarily unavailable. Should you need our assistance, please call the main program line at 231-398-6719 or email us at email@example.com. When doing so, please provide us with safe contact information. Our staff will be in touch as quickly as possible.
In an emergency, please call 911.
