Somerville Local First


Giving Tuesday Feature: Massachusetts Alliance of Portuguese Speakers

Nov 08 10:10 pm

For 45 years, MAPS (Massachusetts Alliance of Portuguese Speakers or has provided a wide range of culturally and linguistically competent health and social services for Portuguese speakers and other community members.

Somerville residents receive assistance in the areas of HIV/AIDS/STI prevention and management; domestic violence and sexual assault services, including batterer intervention; immigrant integration services, including citizenship assistance and much more; family support, including family stabilization and in-home therapy; elder services; language classes...the list goes on!

A $50 to $100 donation goes far: it could cover the cost of a month of lunches for an isolated, low-income senior citizen, or help protect a woman and her children from domestic abuse, or help an immigrant attain citizenship. Please support this week’s #GivingTuesdaySomerville feature organization MAPS today.
