For over 30 years, the Violence Intervention Program (VIP) has been the leader in the protection and care of victims of abuse, neglect, and sexual assault. VIP believes that every child has the right to feel loved and enjoy a safe childhood. Founded by Dr. Astrid Heppenstall Heger, what started as a small child abuse program with two part-time staff has now become the largest child abuse clinic in Los Angeles County, caring for over 18,000 victims of abuse, neglect, and assault each year. Our innovative programs ensure that children and families impacted by violence have the tools and resources to not only survive, but thrive.
