The Second Step (TSS) fosters the safety, stability, and well-being of survivors of domestic violence. Our residential and community-based programs build on the strengths, needs, and values of the individuals and families we serve. In partnership with survivors and in collaboration with the community, we lay a foundation for a future free from abuse and full of possibility. 

When TSS was founded in 1992, it was because four women saw that a short shelter stay alone was insufficient to help survivors break away from abuse. Since then, through the growth of our Residential Programs and acquisition of a second residence, the expansion of our Community Programs through a highly scalable service model, and the development of our innovative Steps to Justice legal services program and Youth and Prevention Programs, we now proudly provide comprehensive and transformational services to over 800 survivors in the Greater Boston Area each year. These wraparound services ensure that TSS is able to partner with survivors all the way from crisis to sustained well-being.
