We all deserve to enjoy our lives and feel safe in our homes and with our dating partners.
Let your family and friends know it's okay to talk about abuse that happens in their relationships. Call ANHC to talk about these issues and discuss options available.
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month!
Help us to show the world we care by wearing purple ribbons, using purple lighting, and don't be afraid to engage in the conversations. Tell people to keep it simple: abuse is wrong and people who choose to abuse need to be held accountable. If you hear people victim-blaming, let them know it's a little more complicated than that, and we need to focus our energies on changing the permissions that allow people to abuse.
Watch for displays and activities too-
The Hair Color Café on Front St. in Owego is sponsoring our Clothesline Display, and they're offering purple hair extensions as a fundraiser for ANHC ($10)!
Join us on 10/15/15 at 6:00 pm at St Paul's Episcopal Church in Owego for our annual Candlelight Vigil program.

And last but certainly not least- bring your dog for a walk on 10/25/15 (12:00), for the "Purple Pooches on Parade", starting at 20 Church St., Owego.
ANHC is excited to announce that we have begun our Supervised Visitation Program!
This will give children the opportunity to safely visit with their parent who has made some poor decisions and exercised some threatening or abusive behavior. It will relieve those children's conflicted feelings of both love for and fear of, and hopefully give the parent the opportunity to review their decisions about appropriate behaviors and begin to base those behaviors from a foundation of respect, for both their children and for the other parent (usually mothers).
If you can help, please click on our donation tab at the top. Every little bit helps, and it's a way for all of us to lend our voice for safety and peace.
