COVID-19 Response


We recognize that during this stressful time in life that violence can increase for those in unsafe situations. The VPC is still available to support all who have been subjected to or effected by domestic and sexual violence 24 hours a day.

We are asking clients:
We are supporting clients through in-person meetings at our office on a very limited and case-by-case basis. Please do not come into the office without first calling and scheduling a time. We strive to first assist you over the phone or videoconference in order to keep you and staff healthy and safe.


The VPC confidential phone lines will continue to be answered 24/7 by either staff or one of the VPC's trained on-call advocates. 

We are asking the community:

To support VPC clients as well as local businesses by donating food gift cards from: Johnson’s Foods, Gene’s Foods (IGA), Cook County Whole Foods Coop, local restaurants that are proving curbside food pickup or

a visa cash card for online grocery shopping.

If you can donate, please mail gift cards to:
