Mission Statement: Victims Assistance Services, a component program of Westchester Community Opportunity Program, Inc., provides free, comprehensive and compassionate services to crime victims and their families, friends and loved ones. VAS also works to end violence through community action, public policy and cultural change and through prevention education programs in schools and in other community venues.It is our belief that through education and the raising of public awareness, we can over time alter the cultural context that allows interpersonal violence to flourish, mitigate the shame inducing stigma of victimization and provide former victims the opportunity to regain as sense of dignity and wholeness.
