Board of Directors, REACH Beyond Domestic Violence, Inc.
Building healthy communities by ending domestic violence
REACH is seeking candidates for the Board of Directors. REACH is a nonprofit, community based organization working with survivors of domestic violence to foster safety and support while engaging communities to promote healthy relationships. Board members are active participants in carrying out the mission of REACH.
Directors are volunteers. They are ambassadors and champions for REACH. Directors attend monthly meetings, provide leadership and involvement to at least one standing committee, support fundraising programs and initiatives, and offer helpful advice and counsel to help meet and exceed REACH’s objectives and goals. Directors serve two year terms with the opportunity to continue.
REACH provides free, confidential support to survivors of domestic violence. We operate a shelter and answer hotline calls 24/7 for people in crisis or anyone with questions. We assist survivors in the community with emotional support, safety planning, court accompaniment, housing, and other needs. We also provide therapy for children and teens who have witnessed or experienced domestic violence, and specialized support for their parents. Our prevention team trains a wide variety of organizations and communities, including police departments, medical professionals, social service agencies, businesses and corporations (and their employees), schools (staff and students), and faith organizations on how to recognize and prevent abuse, and promote healthy relationships. Through this work, REACH serves more than 7,000 people annually, including women, men, people of all races and ethnicities, survivors of all ages, and people who are LGBQT.
Our service area includes 27 cities and towns north and west of Boston. More information at www.reachma.org.
