Additional information

As “social distancing” is encouraged we understand that domestic and/or sexual violence might increase in the home. Individuals may be isolated with an abusive partner or household member, be in fear and unable to access critical services for safety and support. As a result of the guidance issued by the Governor and the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH) there have been temporary shifts to many services to minimize the risk of virus transmission. This document will be updated regularly to offer up to date information about available resources in and around Cambridge for at risk individuals and families who are in need of support due to domestic violence, sexual violence, family violence, and partner abuse.
