Your Year End Gift Will Provide Hope & Healing to Many
“Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness.”
– Desmond Tutu
As we reflect on the past year it is hard not to see the darkness in our world, but you have been the light for the thousands of people who have reached out to Vera House.
You have given them hope. Hope for a life free from abuse. Hope for safety and healing.
Thanks to your kindness and generosity Vera House has continued to provide essential services – emergency shelter, counseling, and advocacy – to those suffering from domestic and sexual violence and elder abuse during this unprecedented time.
We know the future impacts of the pandemic will place considerable strain on our resources. Adults and children suffering from the effects of domestic and sexual violence need you. And they need our services.
You can be the light in the darkness. The hope for a better future.
Please donate now to ensure Vera House services and prevention work continue.
With your gift, we will be able to continue providing emergency shelter, counseling, and advocacy to nearly 3,000 adults and children this year.
Please, make a gift today.
Thank you for helping individuals and families find a place of safety, compassion, hope, and healing.
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
