We are here, open, and ready to help!

No one deserves to be abused, raped or assaulted. Every hour of every day, Elizabeth Freeman Center provides lifesaving, life renewing help to survivors of domestic and sexual violence and to their families.

And the necessary steps we are all taking to stop the spread of coronavirus increase the danger of domestic and sexual violence.
