- Berkshire District Attorney's Office
Pittsfield — When the call went out from the Elizabeth Freeman Center for assistance the District Attorney’s office eagerly took on the challenge to help a valued community partner. The center was low on toiletries and other emergency supplies that their clients who have made homeless by violence depend on. In a few short days the Office collected cash donations and crates and boxes full of personal necessities including shampoo, body wash, diapers, baby wipes and so much more. District Attorney Paul Caccaviello said, “ EFC provides lifesaving services to survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault, and we are happy to support their outreach efforts to help those in our community victimized by violence.”
District Attorney staff participates annually in the Center’s Walk a Mile March to stop rape, sexual assault, and gender violence, and the adopt a family holiday program.
The Elizabeth Freeman Center provides legal advocacy, shelter, safe planning and prevention education services. Those in need of assistance can call 413-499-2425. If you would like to donate please go to their website at www.elizabethfreemancenter.org.
