Sexual Assault 

The leaders of the me too movement have published a toolkit for survivors with ideas for self-care. Perhaps the most important thing we can do during this time is to make special efforts to check-in with survivors and colleagues who are working hard to provide support and interventions for victims and survivors of sexual violence. Download the Toolkit


For adult women who are experiencing trafficking or are at risk, RIA House is continuing to provide services to women across the state in a way that balances staff safety and participant need while honoring the work of the Commonwealth to stop the spread of the COVID 19 virus. We are doing this on a case-by-case basis, with an emphasis on supporting women by telephone and through video conferencing for mentorship, clinical therapy, groups and advocacy each week.
