Domestic Violence Services

Based in Salem, MA, HAWC also has outreach offices located in Gloucester, Lynn at North Shore Medical Center. HAWC provides free and confidential domestic violence services to all survivors including: 24 hour hotline; emergency shelter; legal services, support groups, youth and adult education services.

Population(s) Served
Victims and oppressed people

HAWC assists parents and children who have become homeless due to domestic violence with emergency shelter. We can house 6 adults and up to 18 children in shelter at any one time. We estimate that it costs $2,500 to house a family in shelter for one month. While in shelter they attend support groups, learn about budgeting and household finance, and prepare for independent living. HAWC works with our community partners to find housing for shelter residents and to support the safety planning piece for victims seeking independent housing.

Population(s) Served
Adults

The Parent Child Trauma Recovery program is based on the Psychotherapy Advocacy Combined Trauma Treatment model combining Child Parent Psychotherapy with Advocacy. This model has been evaluated as successful at reducing Post Traumatic Stress Disorder symptoms in both protective parents and children who have experienced violence in the home. The program allows the Clinician to support the protective parent and child with their specific skills and resources, while the Advocate is simultaneously able to provide wraparound services and support that families fleeing abuse require. Services are provided within a culturally competent framework, with clinicians and staff speaking languages of the parent and child, understanding cultural references, and operating within culturally sensitive environments. PCTRP has been operating out of the NS Medical Center in Salem since 2008. HAWC began a successful expansion of PCTRP into Lynn, MA in partnership with Lynn Community Health Center in 2012.
