COVID-19 VSP Office Update
In an emergency, please call or text 911.
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month
Join our #NativeDVAM Social Media Challenge. Doing one small challenge each day this month will make a BIG difference in helping the VSP staff promote the program’s services. DV victims who learn about the VSP’s services have a better opportunity to become survivors.
Offering you hope;
When you are ready, we are here to help.
