"Hearts of Hope"

The Women’s Center of Greater Danbury hosted our 11th annual Hearts of Hope Breakfast on Wednesday, February 6th from 7:30-9:00am at the Fox Hill Inn in Brookfield, CT. 
John Royce was honored with the Service Above Self award for his tremendous support of the Women's Center as the Founder of the Hearts of Hope Breakfast. In addition, our guest speaker, Lisa Whelan, shared her powerful story of hope and survival and spoke about what empowered her to become an advocate against domestic abuse.
As you know, the Women’s Center provides the greater Danbury area with valuable services, including emergency shelter and support services, counseling and advocacy, crisis intervention, and community education, primary prevention and training.
