This Month’s Featured Neighbor

Vera House

Vera House prevents, responds to and partners to end domestic and sexual violence and other forms of abuse. Our agency values are: Giving UNCONDITIONAL CARE to the people we serve and our community. Working in COMMUNITY to advance justice and serve all who seek our support. Providing TRAUMA INFORMED care to the people we serve and working toward healing for all. Honoring INTERSECTIONALITY and centering the truths of the historically excluded and oppressed people we serve. Embracing ACCOUNTABILITY for ourselves and our community as we strive to interrupt the social norms that cause harm.

Vera House was founded in 1977 by a group of concerned individuals led by Sister Mary Vera, CSJ who recognized the need for emergency sheltering services for women in crisis. In 2005, Vera House and The Rape Crisis Center (Founded in 1974) merged their programs and staff. The merged Vera House Inc., continues over a 40-year tradition of quality service to the Central New York Community.

The launch of the 30th annual White Ribbon Campaign begins Monday, April 1st, 2024, with a fundraising goal of $50,000 for the month-long campaign. Funds raised during the campaign directly support clients, programs and services. In 2023, Vera House served more than 17,000 victims and survivors of domestic violence, sexual and other forms of abuse.

In attendance for the segment will be:
CEO, Daquetta P Jones
Director of Prevention Education:
George Kilpatrick
