Community Resource Center

About The CRC

Amirah’s Community Resource Center (CRC) is a safe place of support for those who have experienced exploitation.

 

The CRC is located in Lynn, MA in a walkable communal location. We work to end the cycle of exploitation through free and accessible services, advocacy and community education. The CRC offers case management, peer mentorship, clinical therapy, group programs, on-site childcare and healing activities for women who have experienced exploitation. We believe that every survivor should have the resources, support, opportunities and community to heal, grow and work towards achieving personal goals.

To contact the Community Resource Center, call 781.346.9342.
The CRC is open on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Calls received outside of Tuesday and Wednesday will be returned as soon as possible during CRC hours.
