The 6th Annual Golf Classic of The Center for Family Justice takes place at the Mill River Country Club, 4567 Main St., Stratford, on Monday, June 15. The all-day event begins with lunch at 11 a.m., followed by golf at noon and a reception and auction after golf.
“This is such a popular event, one that people return to year after year,” says Debra Greenwood, president and CEO of The Center. “People are doing what they love – playing golf – while helping to raise money for The Center for Family Justice and the work we do turning those impacted by domestic and sexual violence into survivors.”
The Center for Family Justice (formerly The Center for Women and Families), is bringing all domestic abuse, sexual assault and child abuse services – crisis intervention, police, prosecutors, civil/legal providers, counseling – under one roof, into its Bridgeport headquarters. Additionally, The Center runs satellite offices in Fairfield, Monroe, Stratford and Trumbull.
Tickets are $250 per golfer. Rain date is June 17th. For more information about the event, available sponsorships or to register, visit www.CenterForFamilyJustice.org or contact Pam Dougherty at (203) 334-6154, Ext 21 or firstname.lastname@example.org
ABOUT THE CENTER FOR FAMILY JUSTICE
The Center for Family Justice Inc. (formerly The Center for Women and Families of Eastern Fairfield County Inc.), brings all domestic, sexual and child abuse services – crisis intervention, police, prosecutors, civil/legal providers, counseling – under one roof, in our headquarters in Bridgeport, CT. Together, we work to break the cycle of violence by helping those in crisis restore their lives. Although our name has changed, we continue with the work we have provided for 12 decades, providing free, confidential, bilingual crisis services in Bridgeport, Easton, Fairfield, Monroe, Stratford and Trumbull. It is the comprehensive services our partners are providing that are streamlining the road to healing and self-sufficiency.
Within the past year, The Center answered more than 950 calls on a 24-hour crisis hotline; assisted with the civil and criminal court processes for more than 2,500 survivors of domestic violence; responded to more than 500 survivors of sexual assault and their families; provided a safe home for more than 100 women and children fleeing domestic abuse; coordinated the investigations of more than 170 cases of child sexual and severe physical abuse, developing service plans for the young survivors and their families; and provided psycho-educational support to more than 1,200 survivors of domestic violence, planning for their safety and promoting self-sufficiency.
As part of our mission, The Center educates approximately 4,000 members of the community about the issues of domestic violence, sexual assault and child abuse to prevent future violence and spread the word that about the services we offer at The Center for Family Justice. Annually, we teach more than 2,000 children and teens about building healthy relationships, bullying prevention and dating violence.
