Everyone DeservesHealthy Relationships

At REACH, we’re empowering individuals, families, and communities to overcome domestic violence – because we all deserve safe, healthy relationships.

How We Do Our Work

REACH serves 27 cities and towns throughout the MetroWest and Greater Boston areas of Massachusetts.

To promote healthy relationships and end domestic violence, REACH focuses on four key areas of intervention.

Safety & Shelter

Through our emergency shelter program, we offer immediate services for victims of domestic violence who aren’t safe in their own homes.

Community-Based Advocacy

REACH actively advocates with survivors of domestic violence, supporting them as they reclaim their independence.

Education & Prevention

Our compassionate team leads discussions and trainings in businesses, schools, and other community spaces on recognizing and preventing domestic violence.

Community Engagement

Our outreach programs equip community members of all ages, genders, occupations, and backgrounds to be agents of change.
