In Memory of Jerry Stetson
The Victory Living Programs family is saddened by the recent death of our long-time volunteer and friend, Jerry Stetson. Through his unwavering volunteer efforts he came to know many of our clients for more than 30 years. 

Jerry's legacy in the VLP family will live on through his son, Jay, and son-in-law, Michael Gennett. Jay is a long-time client in the supported living program and the social recreational program and Michael Gennett serves as Secretary of the Executive Board of Directors. Read on.

VLP's Legislative Brunch

Victory Living Programs (VLP) and the Arc of Florida hosted a legislative brunch meet-and-greet on Thursday, August 31, 2017 at Cokesbury Methodist Church . Thank you to  Representatives Bobby DuBose, Patricia Williams and Barrington Russell along with staff from Senator Rader, Senator Book, Representative Moriaitis, Representative Edwards, and Representative Geller's offices for attending and taking the time to learn more about VLP and those we serve and the needs of the  disabilities community.

Post Hurricane Irma
We are so proud of our ADT/Community Inclusion program participants. Cokesbury Methodist Church in Margate cooked and served hot meals for those in the area who lost power in the wake of Hurricane Irma. Our ADT/Community Inclusion program participants went door to door distributing flyers in the neighboring communities to ensure residents knew about this generous offer. Way to go Cokesbury and the ADT participants!
