Massachusetts Survivors Outreach
Massachusetts Survivors Outreach is a grass roots organization based in Massachusetts who provide holistic health and healing services for victims of interpersonal violence who include survivors of:
- child abuse
- sex abuse
- domestic abuse
Holistic health services provided include:
- Evidenced based Energy Medicine,
- Holistic Health and Nutritional Coaching,
- Stress Reduction,
With the help of donations, we are hoping to grow and offer more services such as counseling, hypnosis, life coaching as well as additional resources for survivors of abuse to help them reclaim their lives and work with other organizations to strengthen protection and rights of victims in the court room who are being abused by the very system designed to protect them.
We currently run with 100% volunteers and 100% community donations at this time. We are not a talk the talk organization but walk the walk every day and have a passion and commitment to create positive change and finding the solutions needed to a huge problem.
The Mission of Massachusetts Survivors Outreach (MASO) is heal, educate and empower survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence and child abuse, shed light into the darkness that surrounds these issues as well as provide research and continuing education to professionals working with victims of abuse especially on alternative therapies in treating victims of abuse in the health and wellness communities. MASO will also provide the tools to overcome the physical, psychological, legal, and spiritual obstacles they face on a daily basis.
MASO believes violence against women and children results from the use of force or threat to achieve and maintain control over others in intimate relationships, and from societal abuse of power and domination in the forms of sexism, racism, homophobia, classism, anti-Semitism, able-bodyism, ageism and other oppressions. MASO recognizes that the abuses of power in society foster battering by perpetuating conditions, which condone violence against women and children. Therefore, it is also the mission of MASO to work for major societal changes in the state of Massachusetts that are necessary to eliminate both personal and societal violence and to eradicate social conditions which contribute to violence against women and children.
MASO's work includes advocating for social change and coalition building at the local, state, regional and national levels.
