Get Help

What We Do

We’re here for you.

We understand that you may not know what you want to do about your relationship. We get it that you may not want to go to shelter, that you also have other responsibilities and priorities to consider. And we know that you can be strong. We offer you a safe place in your community and someone who will listen and respect your choices. All of our services and resources are free, voluntary and confidential.

HarborCOV offers victims and survivors of domestic violence free and confidential support that respects your experience and your decisions. Our multilingual, multicultural staff helps you connect to a whole community that supports your choices.

We offer free children’s activities while you participate at HarborCOV.

We know the choices are hard.

We promise:

  • to listen
  • not to judge you or the people you love
  • to help you find options that make sense to you
  • to support your right to be safe in your life
