Our Mission

Mission Statement

Established in 1976, Victims Information Bureau of Suffolk (VIBS) has been a pioneer in the domestic violence and rape crisis movements.

Our mission is to assist the survivors of domestic violence, rape and sexual assault, elder abuse, child sexual abuse and human trafficking; to prevent the incidence of these crimes through education and services; and to raise community awareness of the need for justice and compassion for victims.

Because we envision a community free of all forms of abuse, we advocate for societal changes that will eliminate or decrease domestic and sexual violence.
