Waltham Community Organizing

At REACH, we believe that building community is critical to our mission of domestic violence prevention. A caring and supportive community can be an invaluable resource for people experiencing relationship violence. Our work in Waltham is dedicated to building relationships, creating a safer community, and acknowledging that we can all take a small action to make a big difference for domestic violence prevention.

Say Hi Week
March 21-28
View full schedule

The fourth annual Say Hi to Your Neighbors week will take place from March 21-28, 2015. Each year, community members have worked with REACH staff to plan and implement different community events throughout the week. With support from the Mayor’s office, the Waltham City Council, local businesses, and faith-based organizations, these events are aimed at creating a safer community by increasing connections between community members and decreasing the isolation that many people experiencing domestic violence often feel. We believe that by taking the time to remind one another to “Say Hi” to our neighbors and reach out to folks in the community that we may not know, we create more connections for people in need of support. If we feel more connected and know our neighbors, we are more likely to look out for one another and may feel more comfortable reaching out to them for help.
