Sexual Violence Services
Toll-Free, 24-Hour Confidential Hotline
Our trained hotline specialists assist callers with crisis intervention, risk assessment, and safety planning. Callers are also provided with information about New Hope’s services and other community resources to address domestic and sexual violence.
Our Hotline is also available to family members, friends, neighbors and co-workers who may be concerned about someone they know that may be a survivor of domestic or sexual violence.
SANE Medical Advocacy
We provide trained SANE (Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner) Advocates to every survivor of sexual assault at Morton Hospital in Taunton and Sturdy Hospital in Attleboro. Survivors receive accompaniment, support, and referrals to heal in the aftermath of sexual violence.
Advocates stationed in seven district courts and one probate court assist individuals with obtaining restraining and harassment orders. These advocates are located in Attleboro, Dudley, East Brookfield, Milford, Taunton (District and Probate), Westborough and Uxbridge. This program is partially supported by the Massachusetts Office for Victim Assistance (MOVA) through the 1984 VOCA grant from OVC, OJP, US D.O.J.
Dedicated to supporting both groups and individuals, trained counselors work with children, adolescent, and adult survivors of domestic and sexual violence.
Located at the MJ Leadenham Center in our Worcester office, supervised visitation is provided to non-custodial parents due to a prior history of domestic or sexual violence. Staff model healthy parenting skills with these adults while they visit their children in a safe, monitored and nurturing setting.
Our housing stabilization program provides individuals with funding for past-due rent, utilities, or other costs necessary for providing stable, reliable housing which was jeopardized as a result of domestic or sexual violence.
