Letter from Lui Damiani

Executive Director

~VSC BOD 10_2014 (1)Dear Friends,

Last year, our Central Florida community experienced significant loss and tragedy. Through it all, we came together, united and strong. We are a community that represents love, acceptance, and peace. The VSC team is dedicated to the love and life of this community, and will do whatever it takes, for as long as it takes, to rebuild and help those in need.

We’ve entered 2017 at light speed and are embracing new changes, opportunities, and partnerships. We’ve been fortunate enough to have YOU — amazing supporters, funders, and community partners who have made it all possible.

Ultimately, you are ensuring victims and survivors in Central Florida receive free, unlimited, and confidential services.

So far this year, we have responded to the demand in client services and received additional funding to expand our direct care team. We have opened a new location and are now serving clients in Seminole County. And, we have diversified our workforce to meet the needs of the Central Florida community.

While we understand the critical need for crisis intervention services, we are also working to prevent violence before it occurs. We are taking a proactive approach and are in the community every day training and educating the youth, first responders, at-risk populations, and community partners.

Your investment in these services save the community countless dollars and gives free, confidential services to those most in need.

Our team of professionals is dedicated to conducting our affairs in an open, transparent, honest, and forthright manner. Through community partnerships, grantors, dedicated volunteers, and generous supporters, we will continue to strive towards ending violence in our community and providing expert care to the victims we serve.

We feel honored to be able to serve our community and provide lifesaving services in our community. We recognize that is only because of you. Thank you!

Sincerely,

Lui Damiani

Executive Director
