Healing Arts therapies
The Center for Community Resilience after Trauma (CCRT) provides coordinated support to victims of crime or trauma. CCRT helps thousands of people affected by drunk driving crashes, robbery, industrial accidents, hate crimes, homicide, abuse, and more. CCRT’s services are always free of charge to crime victims. There’s no incident too small and no time limit on when people can receive services. CCRT is funded in part by two grants from the Massachusetts Office for Victim Assistance: the Victims of Drunk-Driving Trust Fund (DDTF) and the 1984 Victims of Crime Act (VOCA) grant.
Healing art therapies are provided, at no charge, for the community on a monthly basis. Find our latest schedule of activities here.

STOPLIFT is a one-day educational program for individuals involved in shoplifting, and also serves as an alternative to prosecution for both youths and adults. Participants examine their motives, learn about the legal consequences of continued shoplifting and develop appropriate behavior to prevent further shoplifting. We welcome referrals from court personnel, police officers, retail security personnel, criminal justice agencies, school administrators, family members, or even self-referrals. A class fee of $60 is required to successfully complete the program. If a participant needs financial assistance, or additional mental health services, STOPLIFT staff will make the appropriate referrals. Classes are offered in Springfield (Hampden County), and Leicester and Westminster (Worcester County).
