At The Second Step, we rely on our community to help survivors of domestic violence reach safety, stability, and well-being. Your contribution to this effort is critical. Scroll down to learn about opportunities to make an impact in the lives of those around you.
Your gift in any amount has tremendous impact on the life-changing work we do at The Second Step. Your generosity will help move the over 800 adults and children we serve each year from lives of abuse to safety, stability, and well-being.
Contributions from individuals like you are critical to the success of our programs and the survivors they serve. Your gift supports a range of needs, from staffing of critical programs, to providing food for survivors, to helping just to keep the lights and heat on.
Each year, hundreds of volunteers collectively donate thousands of hours of their time by helping with childcare, yard cleanup, cooking meals, mentoring survivors, serving on event committees, organizing drives, and so much more.

The Second Step has a limited number of internships for students looking to gain experience in the domestic violence field. We are committed to helping shape the future leaders of the DV movement!
We are at capacity for interns at this time – please check back later for additional opportunities!
Survivors are often forced to leave everything behind to seek safety for themselves and their children. You can help them ease the transition to safety and stability by providing some of these key items.
Families come to our residences with very few possessions, and we always need items to help them get settled. Clients in our Community Programs also often lack the resources to provide for their children as they work to stabilize. And the children and adolescents in our Youth Programs have needs ranging from after-school supplies to health and fitness equipment.
To make a donation please call us at 617-965-3999 or email us firstname.lastname@example.org to learn drop-off locations and times and to make certain your items fit our current needs. Storage is very limited, so we cannot accept all donations at all times. Thank you for your kind understanding.
