In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic we have made the difficult but necessary decision not to host an in-person event; the health and safety of this community remains a top priority.  Although we plan to raise money digitally, this event has always been about much more than just funds— each September we are inspired and hopeful as the community rallies and stands united against domestic violence. It may look a bit different this year, but we need you to help spread the word about our fundraiser and to champion our cause!  #nomoredv #inhershoes2020

Every hour of every day, Elizabeth Freeman Center provides lifesaving, life renewing help to survivors of domestic and sexual violence and their families. Throughout the pandemic, we have remained open and ready to help.  No one deserves to be abused, raped or assaulted.

We do not do this work alone!  Growing awareness and community partnerships propel innovation, including our award-winning Money School, expanded youth education in local schools, our LGBTQ Access Project, and specialized services for immigrants and persons with disabilities.

Elizabeth Freeman Center has offices in Pittsfield, North Adams, and Great Barrington, and staff at Probate and Family Court, Northern Berkshire District Court, Southern Berkshire District Court, and the Adams and Pittsfield police departments.  Our staff can meet people in safe locations almost anywhere in Berkshire County.

Whoever we are, however we look, wherever we go – we all deserve safety and justice.
