Fatherhood is a Blessing

Posted by Victor Staff on January, 22, 2019

In a recent collaboration with Children's Network in San Bernardino County, Victor participated in a Nurturing Fathers training. It was a great success and serves as an example of the power of teamwork, one of our core values. Networking and coordinating with other agencies helps us improve our services and further our mission to be a catalyst for sustained improvement in the lives of those we touch.

Juan Solis, the engagement coordinator for Children's Network, and chair of the Inland Empire Father Involvement Coalition (IEFIC) played a key role in making this happen. The stated mission of the IEFIC is "To encourage healthy child development by promoting the involvement, necessity and value of the role of fathers in the family and community." This mission aligns so well with what we do at Victor, we were excited to get involved. Mr. Solis took a moment to sit down for an interview with our own Samantha Tito, who is a SART (Screening, Assessment, Referral and Treatment) Clinical Supervisor in San Bernardino. As many of you may already know, the SART program focuses specifically on clients from birth to age 5, a critical stage in development where having a father figure present and engaged is extremely important.

Veteran Suicide Crisis: Serving Those Who Served Our Country

Posted by Victor Staff on September, 21, 2018

In a recent article, NBC reported that veterans are twice as likely as civilians to commit suicide. This was based on the most recent report by the Department of Veterans Affairs. That's an alarming statistic that translates to about 20 veterans dying by suicide every single day. Victor Community Support Services has been an engaged county partner in training and suicide prevention events for years. In collaboration with other support services in our communities we do our best to support veterans in need of help. Too often however, we don't get to meet them until they've reached a point of crisis.
