Discover Victory Human Services!
Twenty years ago, our founders created a different kind of human services agency: one that provides high quality services to communities of color that have been historically disadvantaged, while also being on the forefront of advocating for the rights of people with disabilities. They were frustrated with the lack of leadership and career opportunities for Blacks, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC). Even though the majority of human services professionals are people of color, there were few in leadership and change-making positions. Our founders took the bold step of creating a new agency.
Today, we are the largest minority-led human service agency in Massachusetts, our leadership team and Board are predominately comprised of people of color. We provide in-home care and support to seniors and to individuals with developmental disabilities in the Boston, Brockton and Springfield areas.
Our core belief is that “people are greater than their disabilities”, and all of our services reflect this belief.
All of our Victory Human Services (VHS) clients are at high-risk and without VHS services would not be able to remain in their homes and community safely. Our goal is to provide our clients the opportunity to live more independently, and to participate and to thrive in the broader community with dignity.
VHS serves more than 650 clients and trains and supports 500+ caregivers who take care of vulnerable family members within their homes and community. Our VHS client profile is diverse and our strong cultural competencies allow us to serve clients from a broad range of countries of origin including: Haiti, Cape Verde, Sierra Leone, many other African Countries, Dominican Republic, Central and South America, Vietnam, and more.
We are also proud of our FRONT-LINE WORKERS serving during the COVID-19 pandemic. Our staff are heroes, supporting clients who have been impacted by COVID-19, allowing them the opportunity to recover safely within their homes. They continue to go above and beyond, providing the same quality services that keep our clients safe.
