VICTIM SERVICES LEEDS AND GRENVILLE COVID-19

Victim Services of Leeds & Grenville is committed to keeping our clients, our staff and our communities as safe as possible during this difficult time.  Staff continue to work 24 hours a day / 7 days a week as per our normal schedule.  This has not changed.  Our office locations, however, are currently closed to the public.  At present, VSLG staff are continuing to support and provide resources to clients by utilizing telephone, texting, email and video technologies in keeping with World Health Organization policies.  On-scene or in-person responses are at the request of our emergency partners only.  We recognize that this is a stressful time and will do our best to ensure all individual's needs are met to the best of our ability and within the mandate of our services.  We are working closely with our community partners so that we can offer a coordinated response to ensure all community members are provided services.

This page is dedicated to links and information specific to COVID-19 and resources.  These resources are changing; sometimes daily however we will do our best to update them as we can.
