Welcome! Bienvenidos! Bem-vindo!

Everyone knows someone affected by sexual and domestic violence. Whether it is you, a loved one, or an acquaintance, we want you to know that no matter the identity of the person who is seeking services and support, that you are valued and accepted at New Hope.

New Hope’s vision is for everyone to live free from violence and exploitation. It is our mission to serve everyone who is in need of our assistance, and to center populations that have been unserved, underserved, or inadequately served, such as the immigrant and LGBTQIA+2 communities, and people with disabilities. We are constantly working to improve access so that everyone who contacts New Hope receives culturally- relevant, linguistically-appropriate services and supports.

Persons Living with Disabilities

You Are Welcome Here. New Hope provides free, confidential services and support to anyone affected by sexual and domestic violence, including people with disabilities. It doesn’t matter if we can or can’t “see” a person’s disability – we want every person to have meaningful access to what we offer.

We work in collaboration with the Arc of Bristol County to ensure that we are serving survivors with disabilities in the most informed way possible.

It doesn’t matter
if we can or can’t “see”
a person’s disability.

LGBTQIA+2-identified Persons

You Are Welcome Here. New Hope provides free, confidential services and support to everyone affected by sexual and domestic violence, including those who identify as LGBTQIA+2. Know that identifying as LGBTQIA+2 does not disqualify a person from any of the services and supports we offer.

We understand that
LGBTQIA+2 relationships
aren’t the same
as heterosexual ones,
and we don’t treat them that way.

Our trained counselors and advocacy staff are here to support you on your path towards hope and healing.

From 2020-2023, New Hope received technical assistance from The Network/La Red, to support us in providing relevant and inclusive services and supports to this community. We also seek to center this community as a part of our agency’s strategic priorities for our 2024 fiscal year.

Immigrants
You Are Welcome Here. New Hope provides free, confidential services and support to anyone affected by sexual and domestic violence, including immigrants. We do not ask for a person’s immigration status, and we will never disclose the information to government agencies. Being undocumented does not disqualify a person from any of the services and supports we offer.

Currently, we have counselors and advocates who speak both English and Spanish. With the support of our Language Access Plan, we are able to assist people in other languages through an interpretation service. Our trained counselors and advocates are here to support survivors on their path towards hope and healing.

We do not ask
for a person’s immigration status,
and we will never disclose
this information
to government agencies.

Centering immigrants and people who identify as Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) is a priority of New Hope’s. Our goal is to expand access to culturally-relevant services and supports in other languages, and is reflected in our strategic priorities for fiscal year 2024. In collaboration with the Taunton Diversity Network, we are working on a grant-funded project to provide services to BIPOC-identified sexual assault survivors in the Taunton, MA area.
