Domestic Violence Awareness Month

Please join us for our 2022 Domestic Violence Awareness Month events and stand together against domestic violence in Bergen County. Because of you, we have been able to continue working to end domestic violence, to show our solidarity with survivors, and to raise funds for services. These services do not only support victims and survivors, but they also educate our community about domestic abuse and prevention to help break the cycle of violence.
