VNF is similar to E6 and lots of people have processed it at home in E6 by changing the times or concentration.

I've heard there are still labs in the states that process VNF in a modified E6 setup too but I'm preety out of touch with the whole film thing these days so can't give you any lab names I'm afraid.
