Erie County Coalition Against Family Violence

The Erie County Coalition Against Family Violence has been working since 1978 to keep victims & their children safe in their homes. Grounded in the principles of the Battered Women’s Movement, we keep the voices of victims at the forefront of all we do.  The experience of victims guides us, and their safety is our priority. We believe domestic violence is a violation of basic human rights, and we cannot end domestic violence without ending all forms of oppression.  There are many ways to get involved in the work we do, please join us
