Mission Statement

The Victor Valley Community Services Council is committed to improving the independence, security and well being of the community, emphasizing but not limited to the needs of our senior citizens.

Description

Our History

The Victor Valley Community Services Council was organized in 1956 to meet the needs of the growing Victor Valley and High Desert Communities. At the same time the emerging needs included emergency welfare services for residents, relief services for transients, family counseling, health services, house numbering to provide an accurate response capability for emergencies, and the coordination of recreational activities. The Council established a thrift shop, Family Counseling Services, Christmas Baskets in continuation with The Salvation Army, and Senior Citizen's Club.

In the late 1950's the Council sponsored the Red Feather Limited Fund, now an independent organization known as Desert Communities United Way. A decade later the Volunteer Center was added to include, identify and meet additional community needs; this included the referral line and Phone Alert League. Other programs later organized included the High Desert Homeless Services, "A Better Way"(a domestic violence shelter prevention program), Community Resource Network Luncheon, Court Referral (Alternative Sentencing Program) and the Human Race Walk-a-thon.

In recent years the council has assumed leadership for the First Call For Help Referral Line (a warm line similar to 211), and collaborated in non-emergency transportation needs for seniors.
