For survivors of relationship abuse, the holidays can bring feelings of fear, guilt, and loneliness. These feelings and nostalgia for a happier time, can often lead to confusion, and cause survivors to stray from their healing path.

For help on how to navigate the holiday season, visit https://breakthesilencedv.org/facing-holidays-survivor/

If you need to talk with an advocate about an unhealthy relationship, call the FJC at (716) 558-SAFE (7233).

Attention FJC Facebook friends! We're looking for some help!

The FJC was recently gifted a large piece of office equipment that will help save the organization lots of money. We are looking for a volunteer with a truck to help move it from its current location in downtown Buffalo, to the FJC Buffalo Office at the Main-Court building. (Less than five miles)

If you have a truck and could lend a hand, or if you know a moving company that might lend their services for free, please contact Marcey Bryant at [email protected] for more details.

Fond memories and happy times can often co-exist with abusive behaviors, because abuse typically doesn’t happen right away in a relationship. It tends to escalate over time as an abusive partner becomes more controlling.

This makes for complex feelings and difficulty to move forward.

If you are experiencing these confusing feelings, you are not alone. Contact the Family Justice Center to speak with an advocate at (716) 558-SAFE (7233) or visit www.fjcsafe.org to chat.
