BCCRD Inc. is a member of The Mutual Assistance Association (MAA) Coalition of Massachusetts and of the Massachusetts Immigrant and Refugee Advocacy (MIRA) Coalition.
By educating and empowering women to take action on the issue of domestic violence, BCCRD helps refugee women from the former Yugoslavia and other immigrant women to reclaim and rebuild their lives here in the United States. The Domestic Violence Initiative offers education, outreach and peer support, and supports women in developing self-empowerment, leadership and community participation. BCCRD is expanding its outreach to include Albanian, Ethiopian and Sudanese women.
The New American Integration Program recruits committed individuals from diverse backgrounds to assist and strengthen the work of community based organizations that serve refugees and immigrants. NAIP members receive intensive training to teach English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL), serve as medical interpreters, and assist eligible Legal Permanent Residents in their applications for citizenship.
These three universities regularly support our internship program by referring excellent students to us.
