Another year is coming to a close. The opioid epidemic continues to ravage our neighborhoods and our nation, and the work of VIP Community Services is as critical as ever.

VIP is founded on the belief that people can become self-sufficient and transform their neighborhoods into safe, thriving communities. Our client-centered philosophy respects individuals, and tailors treatment to best serve their needs, by helping them find their individualized path to recovery. We are making a difference.

Curtis Rhodes is an inspiring example. He struggled with addiction for 35 years – spending time in prison, living on the streets, losing his family, and revolving in and out of detox. At age 50, Curtis found a path to recovery through VIP. He says that VIP saved his life. Curtis is now a peer recovery navigator at VIP, where he helps drug users get into care so they can recover, heal and get their lives back on track.

But we can’t do this work without you. We thank everyone who has supported us this year – from those of you who made generous donations to our invaluable volunteers. Right now, we need your support more than ever.

Please consider making a year-end tax-deductible donation to help us offer a continuum of services to individuals with histories of chemical dependency.

And, if your employer matches your donations, please ask your employer to match this one (tell your employer that you donated to Vocational Instruction Project Community Services, Inc. – EIN: 13-3224700).

Nothing changes unless we change it … together.
