ORGANIZATION: Violence Intervention Program (VIP)

  • 5 people are interested

Our afterschool Mental Health Activity Center (MHAC) is open for children ages 5-18 while they wait for family to finish their therapy sessions. Volunteers can engage with our kids in a small classroom-like setting by participating in a series of monthly arts and crafts activities, playing games, reading, assisting with homework, etc. Through these interactions, the MHAC offers a collaborative and safe space that can help reinforce what children are learning in therapy and develop and grow the social/emotional skills of participating children. The MHAC is open Monday-Thursday from 2:00 PM to 6:00 PM each week.

About Violence Intervention Program (VIP)


1721 Griffin Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90031, US

Mission Statement

Charged with the mission of protecting and advancing the welfare of at-risk children and families, VIP seeks to significantly better their lives through comprehensive programs that promote not only healing, but also self-confidence and personal empowerment.


Since 1984, the Violence Intervention Program (VIP) has been a national leader in building transformative programs that raise the standard of care for all survivors of power-based violence in Los Angeles County. With over 30 years of proven successes, our hallmark approach to care continues to be an effective model for intervention, treatment, and prevention in order to promote healing for survivors of violence, as well as prevent future violence.

Today, VIP functions as a public-private partnership between the publicly-funded VIP Children's Medical Village at the LAC+USC Medical Center and our private nonprofit, the VIP Community Mental Health Center, Inc. (VIP-CMHC). The first of its kind in Los Angeles County, VIP serves as the largest and only clinic open 24/7 for the comprehensive evaluation and treatment of child abuse cases in Los Angeles County, seeing approximately 20,000 victims of abuse and family violence each year.
