The state of the art facility’s location is confidential

The Willow Domestic Violence Center held a virtual ribbon cutting ceremony to open a state-of-the-art facility Thursday.

A virtual ceremony was necessary because the location of the building is kept confidential to ensure the safety of the families using Willow’s services.

The brand new Shill Family Building makes Willow the largest domestic violence shelter in Upstate New York, doubles the size of its counseling center and includes a first-of-its-kind onsite pet shelter.

“This is not just bricks and mortar. This is about safety, it’s about healing and respectful spaces,” said President and CEO Jaime Sanders.

If you or anyone you know wants to contact the Willow Domestic Violence Center the hotline number is 222-SAFE.
