Our programs and services are being offered remotely!

As the COVID 19 pandemic continues to place the majority of VDRC staff, volunteers and service users at increased risk, we have made the decision to continue to provide our services remotely until further notice.  We are monitoring the situation closely and will adjust our service delivery to ensure everyone’s safety accordingly.

While our office remains closed to in-person visits, we are continuing to provide services via phone, email and technology like video conferencing platforms!
