Make the Choice to Free Yourself from Domestic Violence

YOU ARE NOT ALONE!

The Wyoming County Domestic Violence project is coordinated by the Wyoming County Department of Social Services and delivered by RESTORE Sexual Assault Services. A program of Planned Parenthood of Central and Western New York, RESTORE leads the community response to domestic and sexual violence through advocacy, support and validation that changes the lives of all those affected. All services are free and confidential.
In Wyoming County, Vanesa Quints, RESTORE DV Counselor & Advocate, will support victims in the areas of medical needs, emotional support, police intervention and legal prosecution.  RESTORE offers crisis intervention, short-term counseling, support groups, accompaniment throughout interaction with law enforcement, court and medical personnel, individual consultations with professionals, and referrals for additional needed services.

RESTORE is able to assist with preparing and filing for Orders of Protection, custody petitions, and coordination (through the Department of Social Services) for emergency shelter and transportation.

Lauren Berger, RESTORE Outreach & Education Specialist, engages the community through outreach, prevention education and professional training programs to increase the awareness and improve societal response to domestic and sexual violence in the community, creating a society less tolerant to domestic and sexual violence.

Please direct all domestic violence (and sexual assault) crisis calls to RESTORE’s regional 24-hour hotline: 1-800-527-1757.
