About The Center for Hope and Healing Inc
The Center for Hope and Healing Inc. (CHH) was founded in 1976 by a group of physicians, social workers and students who came together out of concern for the number of rapes in Lowell and who then committed themselves to eradicating sexual violence in Lowell and the surrounding communities.
In 1985, CHH (formerly Rape Crisis Services of Greater Lowell) was incorporated as an independent 501c3 nonprofit organization. In 2012, we changed our name to The Center for Hope and Healing, Inc. to reflect our positive vision and relationships with the broader Merrimack Valley area
Today, with a staff of 14 and 22 active volunteers, CHH is the only sexual assault program serving Lowell and 13 surrounding communities.
