High Risk Assessment & Response
Our High Risk Assessment and Response team focuses on reducing and preventing domestic violence homicides and holding offenders accountable. This is accomplished through strong relationships among the police, the courts, and community providers within Cambridge, Arlington, and Belmont. Through the use of danger assessment tools, we are able to identify high-risk cases and implement crisis intervention plans for victims and their families.
We are pleased to share comments from the people we serve:
"I am a single mother of two children ages 10 and 9. Both children have very challenging disabilities that are a daily struggle both at home and at school; coupled with behavioral issues which makes the simplest tasks complicated. The staff at Riverside are phenomenal! They have been my 'rock' on many occasions and without them I would be completely and utterly lost."
