We are a non-profit, community based program that provides free and confidential crisis services for teenagers in Hampshire County and the Five College Community.

Our program aims to support and empower teen survivors of rape, sexual assault, incest, dating violence, domestic violence, emotional, psychological, and verbal abuse.

We provide services to survivors of all genders. We are also available to friends and family of survivors, social service providers, police, hospital personnel, and others who work with teens.

All Our Services Are Free And Confidential
