Our Mission

Our mission is to create futures free of violence through advocacy, counseling and education for survivors of intimate partner abuse, sexual violence, child abuse, elder abuse, human trafficking and veterans with PTSD.

Since 1976 VIBS has pioneered services and innovative programs for victims of violence. We support survivors through counseling, advocacy and legal programs, work to prevent this violence through education and community outreach and raise awareness for the need for justice and compassion for all survivors. We are committed to helping all victims of Suffolk County. Our services are free and confidential, available in English and Spanish and can serve those with disabilities, in accordance with the ADA. Our 24/7 crisis hotline is equipped to serve the deaf community.

VIBS is an Equal Employment Opportunity Commission organization and does not discriminate  on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, disability, and age in the delivery of services nor employment.
