We are a grass roots organization based in Massachusetts who aid survivors of interpersonal violence in the healing process by providing holistic health services such as evidenced based Energy Medicine, Reiki, Holistic Health and Nutritional Coaching, Stress Reduction, Hypnosis, and Meditation. Our mission is also to search for long term and permanent solutions to healing from abuse and to the growing epidemic of abuse in our society.
With the help of donations, we are hoping to grow and offer more services such as counseling, hypnosis, life coaching as well as additional resources for survivors of abuse to help them reclaim their lives and work with other organizations to strengthen protection and rights of victims in the court room who are being abused by the very system designed to protect them.
We currently run with 100% volunteers and 100% community donations at this time. We are not a talk the talk organization but walk the walk every day and have a passion and commitment to create positive change and finding the solutions needed to a huge problem.

Mission Statement and Purpose
The Mission of Massachusetts Survivors Outreach (MASO) is heal, educate and empower survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence and child abuse, shed light into the darkness that surrounds these issues as well as provide research and continuing education to professionals working with victims of abuse especially on alternative therapies in treating victims of abuse in the health and wellness communities. MASO will also provide the tools to overcome the physical, psychological, legal, and spiritual obstacles they face on a daily basis.
MASO believes violence against women and children results from the use of force or threat to achieve and maintain control over others in intimate relationships, and from societal abuse of power and domination in the forms of sexism, racism, homophobia, classism, anti-Semitism, able-bodyism, ageism and other oppressions. MASO recognizes that the abuses of power in society foster battering by perpetuating conditions, which condone violence against women and children. Therefore, it is also the mission of MASO to work for major societal changes in the state of Massachusetts that are necessary to eliminate both personal and societal violence and to eradicate social conditions which contribute to violence against women and children.
MASO's work includes advocating for social change and coalition building at the local, state, regional and national levels.
Principles of Unity
MASO is a grass roots organization comprised of people dealing with the concerns of battered women and their families as well as those afflicted with sexual assault, child abuse, and rape. We currently represent those who reside in the State of Massachusetts. Our programs support and involve victims of abuse of all racial, social, religious and economic groups, ages and lifestyles. We oppose the use of violence as a means of control over others and support equality in relationships and the concept of helping victims assume power over their own lives. We strive toward becoming independent, community-based groups in which survivors make major policy and program decisions.
