Welcome! We are a nonprofit, community-based domestic violence program that has been assisting survivors of domestic violence and their families for more than 40 years. SSRAC is committed to providing comprehensive services for intimate partner and familial violence, as well as victim services and prevention for survivors and loved ones of impaired driving crashes and loved ones who have lost someone to homicide. We work to further a community culture that provides safety and support to those affected by domestic violence, homicide, and impaired driving crashes to empower victims, survivors, and their children so that they can lead lives free from domestic violence and strive to heal from these traumatic events.
Intervention and prevention education and workshops are provided to all interested community groups (i.e. civic, religious, business, and school). We also bring the White Ribbon Campaign into area schools. The White Ribbon Campaign is an initiative that encourages men to become outspoken advocates against violence against women. As dating violence is a very real issue teens are grappling with, the White Ribbon Campaign is an effective tool in educating young people about dating and domestic violence.
Services are free and confidential to all, regardless of age, race, ethnicity, identity, orientation, religious beliefs, gender, immigration status, and/or income.
The South Shore Resource and Advocacy Center works with our community partners to educate people about domestic violence, in addition to preventing its occurrence in the first place. Partners include local police departments, area schools, local Council on Aging centers, the Department of Children & Families, Department of Transitional Assistance, Plymouth County DA’s Office, Plymouth County Sheriff’s Department, Plymouth County Risk Assessment Team, the United Way of Greater Plymouth County, faith-based entities, and other interested groups.
