Strong Women, Families, and Communities

We focus on the health of residents and protecting communities across the City of Boston. We review services for children, families, and seniors, with a focus on women and girls.

We concern ourselves with the health and well-being of residents, including health and human services and city programs for youth, families, and seniors, with a particular focus on women and girls.

Some of the public health issues we work on include:

  • domestic violence
  • sexual harassment
  • child abuse
  • LGBTQ health
  • hunger, and
  • youth violence.

We hope to work towards a City where everyone feels safe and healthy.

We work on public safety topics affecting women and girls together with the Committee on Public Safety and Criminal Justice, as well as trauma issues with the Committee on Public Health.
