According to recent data from the National Crime Victimization Survey, LGBTQ+ individuals are nearly 4 times more likely to be victims of violent crime than individuals outside of those communities (Flores, Langton, Meyer, and Romero, 2020).
We at VIBS are here to help ALL victims of violence, and have been working with organizations such as Pride for Youth (PFY) to be sure that LGBTQ+ victims receive the services and support they need.
VIBS assists sexual assault survivors and child abuse survivors through counseling, advocacy and legal services.
If you are in need of support, call our 24/7 free confidential hotline: 631-360-3606.
Come Join Us for the ECLI and VIBS Spring Festival
This is a family event for staff, clients, supporters, and community members! We hope to see you there!
