VIDA is part of a worldwide community of individuals, organizations and agencies who are working on behalf of survivors of violence and trying to end the cycle of violence. We form partnerships: to ensure improved access to assistance, to provide seamless coordination between services meeting different survivor needs, to align strategies for greater impact, and to share resources in challenging times so that assistance never stops.
