Mission Statement

MSP strives to engage each member of society in our work to end domestic violence, so that all relationships can embrace the principles of respect, equality, and peacefulness. Since 1978, we have advanced this mission throughout the Westchester County region with advocacy, community education, and services to those harmed by domestic violence.

Through advocacy, we act as a force for social change in law and public policy.

Through community education, we challenge public perceptions of intimate violence and the social inequities that give rise to it, and we promote prevention with a special emphasis on youth.

Through direct services, we support the abused in seeking safety, self-determination, and justice.

Description

MSP provides comprehensive shelter, advocacy, legal services, and supportive services for victims of domestic violence, sexu al abuse, stalking, and human trafficking and currently offers services and programs that address the needs of domestic violence victims at various stages of separating from their abusers and their subsequent pursuit of productive, independent lives. Services and programs include: two emergency shelters; a 24-hour hotline for assistance and referrals; an extensive support group network in both English and Spanish; a full service Legal Center providing advice and representation; and a Self Sufficiency program that helps transition victims back to the workforce. MSP’s comprehensive children’s services include both residential and non-residential support groups and a therapeutic art program for children who have experienced domestic violence. Outreach efforts reach high school students to prevent dating violence and healthcare workers to identify signs of domestic violence.
