Welcome to Respond!

New England's first domestic violence agency and the second oldest in the nation, RESPOND, Inc. is a pioneer in the movement to end domestic violence. Its work began in the early 1970s, when four Somerville, Massachusetts women started a grassroots effort to support victims of domestic violence by opening their own homes as safe havens for women fleeing abuse. In 1974, these "founding mothers" formed RESPOND. For over 40 years RESPOND has provided life-saving shelter, support services, training and education to more than 100,000 members of the community. Services are free and confidential, and available to all survivors of domestic abuse.

Don, Dave, Sarah and Kate have volunteered to run the Boston Marathon and raise funds in honor of RESPOND’s work to end domestic violence. To support Team RESPOND visit: www.fundraise.com/teamrespond

RESPOND was named Hometown Hero thanks Fox 25 News and DCU Credit Union! Executive Director, Jessica Brayden, accepted the award on behalf of all RESPOND’s volunteers, donors, contributors, staff and mostly, those with the courage to come forward, share their story and move from crisis to confidence and a life free of domestic violence.
