Our Mission

The National Stuttering Association (NSA) is a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing hope and empowerment to children and adults who stutter, their families, and professionals, through support, education, advocacy, and research.

Our three chapters seek to follow the mission of the NSA, by providing support to people who stutter (adults and children, alike!), their loved ones, and professionals. The Boston North Adult Chapter was founded in 1981, the Boston Adult Chapter was founded in 2014, and the Boston Family Chapter was founded in 2016.

We are happy to offer a network of three chapters for people who stutter, their families and friends. You can join us for monthly meetings, led by Liz Gomez (for families) and Rebecca Glass (for adults), or join us for one of our quarterly special events, organized by Sarah Onofri. 

We hope to enrich the stuttering community of the Greater Boston Area and would love for you to join us!

The Chapter Leaders

Rebecca Glass has been an active member of the NSA since 2015. She lives in Cambridge, MA and works as a Physical Therapist at Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital. In her free time, Rebecca can be found running, cooking or laughing with her friends. Rebecca is grateful for the friendships and self-growth that the NSA has provided for her and is excited to share this with with other people who stutter in the Boston Area.

Liz Gómez is the parent of a child who stutters. She and her children have become active members of the NSA’s Boston Family chapter since 2016, and she is excited to be leading the family chapter. She teaches Spanish in a local high school and volunteers to actively welcome immigrants into her hometown.

Sarah Onofri serves on the NSA Board of Directors as Secretary. She has been a part of the NSA since 2006 and is thankful she’s been able to meet so many other people who stutter. She lives in Quincy, Massachusetts, where she teaches English as a Second Language at an elementary school.
