In recognition of Domestic Violence Awareness Month - October, Haven House held a table event in the MTC lobby on Monday, Oct. 16.

Haven House was founded in 1979 by the Coalition for Victims of Domestic Violence (now known as the Erie County Coalition Against Family Violence). For over 35 years, Haven House has been working to prevent domestic violence/intimate partner violence and promote peace in the home.
