Our Services

Since our founding in 1975, the Women’s Center has provided a safe haven as the sole provider of domestic abuse and sexual assault survivor services in the Northern Fairfield and Southern Litchfield county areas.  The organization serves over 20,000 individuals from our area communities with free and confidential services that are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.   

Emergency Shelter & Support Services

Since 1975, the Women’s Center has saved lives and offered a safe and secure environment for adult and child victims of domestic and sexual violence.  Women and children are served by our 13-bed shelter, Elizabeth House, while men are provided shelter in a separate safe location.

Counseling & Advocacy Services

We offer individual and support group counseling and advocacy services for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault and for those dealing with other major life transitions such as separation and divorce, grief and loss, and self-esteem issues.

Crisis Intervention

The Center provides two 24-hour hotlines for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault, and our trained advocates provide on-site emergency response at area hospitals, police departments and at court.  Walk-ins are also served at the 2 West Street facility.

Community Education, Primary Prevention & Training

We firmly believe that the path toward ending the violence lies in education,and toward that end we provide educational programs free of charge throughout our communities - from pre-school aged children to senior citizens.  Primary prevention and education programs are provided in schools from pre-K through college level as well as to area businesses, social and civic groups, and faith-based organizations.  Programs include: Healthy Relationships, Anti-bullying, Staying Safe on College Campuses, Gender Images in the Media and more.
