Mission Statement

Health Imperatives’ is a non-profit agency that offers an array of comprehensive programs and services that promote the health and wellness of vulnerable families and individuals in Southeastern Massachusetts. For more than 35 years we have offered a continuum of safety, prevention, and intervention services and have worked with vulnerable populations to create healthy, safe, and vibrant families and communities.

Description

Our programs and services are based on our two areas of focus and expertise: Health Intervention and Prevention, and Violence Intervention and Prevention. Undergraduate interns will work primarily with the Violence Intervention and Prevention services. Violence Intervention and Prevention Services (VIP) provide comprehensive services to survivors of sexual assault and works to ensure the safety of all individuals through prevention and training.

The VIP programs include: Sexual Assault Crisis Counseling Center, which provides crisis counseling and trauma support to survivors of violence and their families, Penelope’s Place, which provides emergency shelter for survivors of domestic violence throughout the state, and SAFEPLAN, which provides court and legal advocacy and safety planning services.
