On behalf of our Board of Directors, staff, volunteers and the hundreds of individuals we serve, we are thankful to all who made the 4th Annual Working to Heal Breakfast possible! What an amazing turn out!

THANK YOU for making domestic violence in the community your business. We enjoyed your presence. Please know how much we appreciated your participation.

The annual breakfast is HAWC’s second largest fundraising and public awareness event.  Our goal this year was to raise 28k, and we exceeded this goal, thanks to the generosity of our donors, friends and sponsors.

We also had the opportunity to recognize three of our long time breakfast event corporate sponsors, Eastern Bank Charitable Foundation, Kelly’s Roast Beef and Johnson O’Connor Feron & Carucci LLP.

Beginning in 1978 with a hotline and emergency shelter, HAWC services have evolved to meet the ever changing needs of victims. Today HAWC’s free and confidential services also include: advocacy in courts, police departments and healthcare settings; trauma recovery counseling for adults and children; support groups; economic stability services; relocation and rental and assistance; and prevention education in schools and communities.

We are grateful to the North Shore community for their continued support of Healing Abuse Working for Change!
