IVS is a volunteer-driven Community Wellbeing Program of the Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte, originally funded in 2018 in order to provide after-hours emergency crisis support and advocacy to the community. Funded through the Ministry of the Attorney General and the Association of Iroquois and Allied Indians, IVS works closely with victims services and victim witness programs of Hastings County, Napanee, and Kingston, as well other mainstream services such as the Quinte Co-ordinating Committee Against Violence, the Ontario Provincial Police Sexual Assault Regional Collaborative Review Committee and all services provided by Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte.
