Domestic & Family Violence
We’re here to help LGBTQ people who have experienced domestic and family violence by providing a range of resources and support services.
As a members of the LGBT DV Committee of WNY, The Pride Center and Haven House have entered into a partnership that allows LGBTQ individuals to access resources and services for victims of intimate partner violence without fear of discrimination.
Haven House, long known as a resource for women who were domestic violence victims, has recognized the need to reach out to LGBTQ individuals who have been victimized as well. Currently, Haven House offers shelter to women, including trans-women (MTF). Unfortunately, men, including trans-men (FTM), cannot seek shelter through Haven House. However, Haven House does have LGBT affirmative counselors who will counsel anyone regardless of gender identity.
If you are a victim of intimate partner violence, please contact Haven House 24 -Hour Domestic Violence Hotline at (716) 884-6000
