Domestic Violence Shelters in Greater Boston

If you or a member of your household are in immediate danger due to domestic violence, call 911.

SafeLink
SafeLink is Massachusetts’ statewide, 24/7, toll-free domestic violence hotline run by CasaMyrna.  SafeLink hotline advocates are multilingual, and have access to a translation service that can provide translation in more than 130 languages. All calls to SafeLink are free, confidential and anonymous. 
SafeLink’s state-of-the-art technology allows the advocate answering your call to keep you on the line while you are being connected to a shelter program in your area. This allows callers who are in danger to get help with a single call, rather than having to make numerous calls to different shelter programs across the state.
The SafeLink number is (877) 785-2020.
