New Loan Closing: Violence Intervention Program

August 12, 2021

Empowering survivors to live free of violence

$500,000 bridge loan through the Trinity Church Grantee Loan Fund 

Violence Intervention Program (VIP) is a community-based nonprofit organization established in East Harlem in 1984. VIP’s mission is to lead Latina victims of domestic violence to safety, empower them to live free of violence, and to help them reach and sustain their full potential. The majority of VIP’s clients are immigrants to the United States who find themselves navigating unfamiliar systems during crisis. VIP collaborates with other social and legal service organizations to develop a safety net of support for survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. 

Currently, VIP receives the majority of its funding from contracts with city, state, and federal government agencies. However, the COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated delays in reimbursement from the government. This loan will allow VIP to keep cash on hand and continue offering essential services until they are reimbursed. It will also allow them to maintain their cash flow as they expand and diversify their fundraising program over the next several years.
