The Second Step could not do what we do without our supporters. Providing trauma-informed, survivor-centered services at no cost in our challenging economic climate is no easy task. Our supporters have made a dramatic and lasting impact in the lives of the survivors we serve. THANK YOU!
Reflecting our long history in the communities of Newton, MetroWest, and Boston, we draw a significant amount of our support from individuals just like you. From $25 recurring monthly donations to larger multi-year pledges and matching gifts, every level of commitment to the programs and services we provide makes a real and lasting impact to the families we serve.
We hold major fundraising events each year, as well as many smaller outreach and education events. Please follow our Events page for up-to-date info, and for ticket and sponsorship information. We hope to see you there!
We are proud to partner with with state and federal funding agencies that provide partial support for our Residential Programs, Community Programs, and Steps to Justice legal services program. These multi-year contracts allow us to provide a consistent baseline of critical services.
Your support has changed lives, and your continued commitment ensures that survivors continue to receive the shelter, case-management, stabilization, legal, and supportive services that they and their children need to live lives free from violence and full of possibility.
