Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
We envision a world where gender, race and other oppressions are erased: a world where women and girls are safe and valued. We envision a world where men and boys engage in healthy masculinity and where concepts of gender are inclusive and not necessarily binary. We work to place survivors lives and voice at the center of all we do in the movement, particularly the voices of SE Asian, Black, and Latinx survivors who have been most marginalized in our communities. CHH’s vision drives its goals to strengthen culturally-relevant advocacy, promote prevention and community engagement, and influence public policy and systems change.
The Center for Hope and Healing Inc. (CHH) was founded in 1976 by a group of physicians, social workers and students who came together out of concern for the number of rapes in Lowell and who then committed themselves to eradicating sexual violence in Lowell and the surrounding communities.
In 1985, CHH (formerly Rape Crisis Services of Greater Lowell) was incorporated as an independent 501c3 nonprofit organization. In 2012, we changed our name to The Center for Hope and Healing, Inc. to reflect our positive vision and relationships with the broader Merrimack Valley area.
Today, with a staff of 17 and 25 active volunteers, CHH is the only sexual assault program serving Lowell and 13 surrounding communities.
