Seek help with Pathways’ many multicultural programs
Multicultural & Multilingual
Pathways for Change has been supporting survivors since 1973. We recognize that sexual violence is motivated by the need for power and control and is never the survivor’s fault. Survivors often experience intense feelings as a result of the loss of control and violation they have suffered. Feelings may be present immediately after or years later.

Pathways offers a variety of professional workshops to organizations and groups from the Central Massachusetts Region on a variety of topics.
Deaf Survivors Program
Deaf Survivors Program, supported in part by a VAWA grant administered by the Massachusetts Office of Safety & Security and funding from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, provides culturally appropriate and accessible crisis counseling and advocacy services to survivors of sexual violence who are deaf in Franklin, Hampshire, Hampden, Middlesex and Worcester Counties.
Sexual Assault Youth Education (SAYE) Program
The role of the SAYE Program is to raise awareness of the incidence and myths about sexual assault, and to have a role in building and expanding the resiliency factors and strengths of communities. By working in positive ways toward shared goals with the community, we can have an impact on the root causes of sexual assault.
Males Advocating Change (MAC) Program
Promoting healthy, non-violent masculinity.
For more information, or to bring the MAC Program to your school or youth organization, please contact our Amparo Cruz at 508-852-7600 x125.
Most violent acts occur between individuals who know each other (family, co-workers, schoolmates) rather than random strangers. This pattern holds true for college campuses as well; in most cases, the survivor knows their perpetrator.
Worcester County Clothesline Program
The Worcester County Clothesline Project (WCCP) started in 1992 as a collaborative effort between agencies and women’s groups to bring the issues of violence against women into the public domain.
