About REACH Beyond Domestic Violence, Inc.
REACH, which stands for Refuge, Education, Advocacy, and CHange, provides safety and support to survivors of domestic violence, and empowers community members to promote healthy relationships.
What We Do: REACH provides free, confidential support to survivors of domestic violence. We operate an emergency shelter, and answer hotline calls 24/7 for people in crisis or anyone with questions. We assist survivors in finding longer-term housing and counsel for legal issues. We also provide therapy to children up to age 18 who have witnessed or experienced domestic violence, and specialized support for their parents. Our prevention team trains a wide variety of organizations and communities, including police departments, medical professionals, social service agencies, military personnel, local businesses and corporations, schools, and faith organizations on how to recognize and prevent abuse, and promote healthy relationships. REACH also trains employers in creating policies that support employees who are survivors of domestic violence, in compliance with state law.
Who and Where We Serve: REACH serves more than 7,000 people annually, including women, men, people of all races and ethnicities, survivors of all ages, and people who are LGBTQ. Our primary service area consists of 27 communities in Greater Boston/MetroWest, while our shelter and hotline provide help for individuals throughout Massachusetts.
