Victims of domestic abuse have to confront a wide range of emotions when they seek help. And those emotions can intensify when they take the first steps to prosecute an abuser. But Buffalo-area groups like the Family Justice Center can provide support. WBFO’s Nancy Fischer has more about the center and its expansion plans.
The Family Justice Center of Buffalo officially opened its new Williamsville satellite office Monday to reach domestic violence victims in the Northtowns. WBFO'S Eileen Buckley says the new safe haven will provide shelter for women and children seeking protection from an abusive situation.
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. The Family Justice Center of Buffalo hosts its annual Mosaic fundraising event in downtown Buffalo Thursday evening. Next month the organization will be opening another satellite home in the Northtowns.
