Help Us Make the Holidays Bright for the Families We Serve

Giving to the people Vera House serves this holiday season is easy and rewarding with our simple to use online platform. The Holiday Giving Program allows you to give in a way that works best for your family or group. Please consider selecting a giving option (or two!) from either The Gift Of Choice or from our Amazon.com Holiday Wish List

Together, we can make this holiday season shine a little brighter!


One of the greatest gifts that we can give the people we serve is the opportunity to decide what they and their families need. We ask you to consider donating gift cards/certificates or making a Gift Of Choice donation through our secure website and allow us to do the shopping!

Gift cards/certificates provide the opportunity for survivors to purchase something special for themselves or their families and allows flexibility for family-specific needs.

Vera House's AMAZON.COM HOLIDAY WISH LIST is as easy as point and click. We have included suggestions for holiday gifts for clients of all ages.

Best of all, your gift(s) will be shipped directly to Vera House!

 

We kindly request that donations be delivered, mailed or dropped off to Vera House by December 17 to allow enough time for holiday distribution.

If you have questions or if you would prefer to donate in another way, please contact: Sara Tucker at stucker@verahouse.org or call (315) 425-0818 ext 2234.

A Message to Andrew Cuomo

“The Friends of Andrew Cuomo” spent over $300,000 to launch an ad campaign designed to paint former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo as a victim of political attacks because of the sexual harassment claims against him. We cannot allow this gaslighting to continue while the ad revictimizes victims of not only Cuomo’s sexual harassment but ANYONE who has ever experienced abuse. The tactics used by Cuomo and his supporters further represent the barriers that survivors face every day that prevent them from coming forward and getting support. 

 

We at Vera House have asked Andrew Cuomo to take accountability for the harm he has caused on multiple occasions. Instead of admitting to his wrongdoings, he continues to use power and control to suppress and invalidate the truths of the survivors.  Today we released a video, produced by Solon Quinn Studios and supported by Survivors’ Network, that sends a powerful message to survivors, "I believe you."  

 

We are asking you to help us amplify the video so that survivors throughout New York and the rest of the world know that we believe and stand with them. 

 

Here’s how to get involved:  

1. Share our post on Facebook, Linkedin, and Twitter  

2. Engage with our content on Instagram and TikTok   

3. Share survivor support resources from your organization  

4. Tag @verahouseinc
