Casa Myrna delivers solutions to end domestic and dating violence. Founded in 1977 by community activists, these solutions include:
- Three Boston-based shelters for women and children who are homeless and in crisis due to domestic and/or family violence
- A holistic range of bilingual English/Spanish supportive services to help women in crisis rebuild their lives, including legal advocacy, support groups, individual counseling, housing search assistance, financial literacy education and assistance with finding educational/workforce development programs
- SafeLink (877-785-2020), the only statewide, 24/7, multilingual domestic violence hotline in Massachusetts
- Education, outreach and public awareness campaigns on mass transit systems statewide about domestic and dating violence.
Casa Myrna helps build better futures for women and children struggling with many forms of adversity, including poverty, violence and homelessness.
