COVID-19 Update

On March 10, Governor Charlie Baker declared a state of emergency and announced new precautionary measures for employees to follow in order to mitigate the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). MOVA is implementing these suggested measures while working to ensure the continuity of operations. Please continue to communicate with MOVA staff via email and phone. Thank you for your patience and cooperation.

If you or someone you know is quarantining in a home where they do not feel safe, help is available. The National Domestic Violence Hotline is offering assistance and safety planning 24/7. Call 1-800-799-7233 for live support. If you’re unable to speak safely, you can log onto to chat online.

During this time, we encourage you to check individual program websites for the latest information on their delivery of services.
