Thank You for Supporting the Abby's House Spring-Tacular

Shelter

Imagine having nowhere to go; nowhere to sleep, eat or shower. Now, imagine having children to take care of under these circumstances. Where would you go?

Housing

Abby’s House is Worcester’s largest provider of affordable housing specifically designed to meet the needs of women and children.

Advocacy

We all need support to get through the tough times in our lives. At Abby's, having a personal Advocate makes a world of difference to the women we serve.
