Vera House Services Poster
Vera House is an essential service. We are still serving individuals and families who are impacted by abuse, violence, neglect and exploitation. We are answering calls on our 24-hour support line (315-468-3260) and providing emergency shelter. We are connecting with people on our new Web Chat service when someone needs to reach out for help without having the privacy to speak. We are providing advocacy and therapy services remotely via phone and video conferencing and responding to sexual assault victims at the hospital via phone. We are committed to being here for victims and survivors during this uncertain time.
We want everyone who needs our help to know that they are not alone. By simply sharing our services poster, you can extend a life-line to someone who desperately needs safety and support. We are here, ready to offer hope – please share our poster and help us help others.

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.
