Dear Friends of VIP:

There’s no way around it: we’re battling a public health crisis unlike any that we’ve ever seen. With hospitals struggling to keep up with new cases of COVID-19, our health system is overburdened and fighting to keep up.

At VIP, we’re working hard to prioritize the safety and well-being of our clients and employees, while easing the burden placed on hospitals. We continue to provide services including primary care, pediatric care, and mental health aid to New York’s most vulnerable populations, both in-person and remotely.

We’re also taking care of clients in our shelters and residences, as well as those in our Opioid Treatment Program, providing medication on a modified schedule and telehealth services for individual and group counseling – but we need your help.

I’m asking for your financial support so that we can expand access to as many New Yorkers as possible and provide the essential services that are needed more than ever before. Please consider making a donation today.

Be well,

Debbian Fletcher-Blake
Chief Executive Officer
