Children With Voices

Our Children With Voices program is for children who have witnessed domestic violence, and for their parents.  Our goal is to improve the safety of these children and their families by providing support, stress management skills, parenting education, and access to compassionate therapeutic resources.  We provide a wide range of services that are customized to each family’s needs.

  • Has your child witnessed or been affected by domestic violence?
  • Do you have questions about what services are available for you and your child?
  • Are you a professional looking for consultation or trainings about domestic violence issues?

…If you answered “yes” to any of the above questions, assistance is available. Please contact us at 617-354-3911 for more information or to make a referral.
