We received very exciting news recently that the FDA and CDC have authorized COVID-19 vaccines for children under five years of age. This is so important for those of us who work with or who are parents of young children.
We encourage everyone who is eligible to be vaccinated and boosted. We expect to be hosting our next vaccine clinic soon!

Thank you to everyone who joined us for the third annual LEAP Awards! Because of your overwhelming support, we were able to raise over $46,000 to support the children and families of the Goleta Valley! Big thanks to all those who made LEAP a huge success including our staff, board, supporters, and of course our IVYP families! We hope to see you next year at LEAP! The full event will be available to watch soon on IVYP’s Youtube channel so stay tuned!

April 2022

How can YOU prevent child abuse? April is Child Abuse Prevention Month. Though really, why just one month?
Shouldn’t we work to prevent child abuse every month of the year?

IVYP is what we call a “primary prevention” organization. Primary prevention is the prevention you don’t see, because if we are successful, we keep child abuse from happening.
