For this National Volunteer Week activity, the Junior League of Syracuse will be hearing from a speaker from Vera House to hear about issues the organization sees within the community and how the JLS can help. During the event, members will assemble hygiene kits for Vera House.
Vera House is a comprehensive domestic and sexual violence service agency providing shelter, advocacy, and counseling services for women, children & men, education and prevention programs and community coordination. On our website, you will find information about our programs & services, special events, news, and ways to give. You will learn what to do in a domestic violence or sexual assault emergency, as well as how to help friends or loved ones who are in an abusive situation. You will find out how to further the mission of Vera House by joining our hundreds of volunteers. You will have an opportunity to sign our pledge to never support, commit or remain silent about abuse. It is our hope that you will find our website to be an excellent resource, and we invite you to stop back again soon
