Mass Violence Services

MOVA supports free services in Massachusetts to help victims and survivors of acts of mass violence. These services provide a range of options to support an individual’s specific needs.

Below you can find local mass violence services by either searching by zip code or city/town, or finding services offered in a specific Massachusetts county. If it is an emergency call 911.


If you or someone you know needs support or help coping with stress, emotional distress, or grief during the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, help is available.

If you, a family member, or a loved one has been the victim of a violent crime, you can fill out an application with the Victim Compensation and Assistance Division of the Massachusetts Attorney General's Office. They are able to provide financial assistance to eligible victims of violent crime for uninsured medical and dental care, mental health counseling, funeral and burial costs, and income lost due to the inability to work.
