Friends of the VPC

The "Friends of the Violence Prevention Center" are individuals who are committed to the VPC's mission and vision, and have only limited time to give to the program. Becoming a Friend of the VPC allows you to stay connected, and receive updates on events and volunteer opportunities.


Volunteer opportunities include tasks such as event planning, advertising, encouraging community participation, fundraising, providing refreshments for events, organizing special events, mailing assistance, grant writing/reviewing, etc.


Friends of the VPC receive updates on our programs and services, as well as state and legislative information and decisions concerning domestic and sexual violence. These updates come via e-mail.


Friends of the VPC will also receive a digital copy of our newsletter, which comes out every other month. The newsletter details what we've been up to, help you get to know the VPC team and offers tips for safe, happy, and healthy living.
