About H.U.G.S.

“Help Us Get Safe”

We are a local non-profit organization established in 2003. We are funded by grants and tax-deductible donations. Donations may be sent to P.O. Box 91, Sharon, MA 02067.

What we do:

Education and Prevention:

We feel that education is one of the keys to preventing and stopping the cycle of violence in all forms. To this end, we partner with the Sharon Public School system, to educate students about healthy relationships, via plays and programs.

For adults, we sponsor programs to promote awareness such as the Silent Witness Program and the Clothesline Project. Other programs may include the White Ribbon Campaign. These events will be on our calendar as they are scheduled.

Scholarships:

We sponsor annual financial scholarships for high school seniors in Sharon, based on an essay response to questions about dating violence and what constitutes a healthy relationship. We have targeted this age group to help prepare them for their first year in college.
