Additional BARCC Office to Open

We’re excited to announce that BARCC will be opening a new office in Waltham. The office, which will be located in the Moody Street area, will offer survivors of sexual violence in the MetroWest communities with a closer-to-home option for in-person support. Survivors and their loved ones will be able to talk through options, explore resources, and get connected to additional services. Services will be available in English and Spanish, as well as other languages upon request.

“This new office will reduce barriers that may have prevented survivors and community members in Waltham and surrounding towns from connecting to BARCC and getting the support they deserve,” says Gina Scaramella, BARCC’s executive director. “We’re looking forward to having a home for the BARCC community in the MetroWest area, to welcoming new people in, and reaching more survivors and their loved ones.”

The new office, which will be wheelchair accessible and close to public transportation, will also host trainings and community workshops on a variety of topics related to supporting survivors and preventing sexual violence.

We’re currently getting the space ready, so stay tuned for more information on our opening!
