As we continue to care for our Regis community, we know that domestic violence is a real and significant issue. If you or someone you know needs help, please visit the following resources that can be accessed remotely during this time:
The Middlesex District Attorney's Office has launched a new dedicated text line. This line will provide victims with direct access to a victim witness advocate via text message. The line provides the opportunity for victims in non-emergency situations to have live interaction with an advocate in the District Attorney’s Office without having to say a word. Victims can now reach an advocate during regular office hours (8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.) via text message at 781.281.4066. The line is not monitored 24/7 and should not be used as an emergency line.
Governor Charlie Baker and Lt. Governor Karyn Polito announced expanded services for anyone not safe at home during the COVID-19 stay-at-home order. SafeLink, the Commonwealth’s statewide, 24/7 toll-free and confidential domestic violence hotline, is now also providing support to survivors of sexual assault. Call the SafeLink hotline at 877.785.2020 to get help and advocacy. Judges are also available 24 hours a day to process restraining orders. Call the Massachusetts Trial Court help line at 1.833.91.COURT, press 1 for the District Court division. For all emergencies, please call 911. See additional resources here.
