Women's Center: Working to End Violence


In January of 2007, Western Connecticut State University and The Women’s Center of Greater Danbury solidified a partnership by signing an agreement for the Women’s Center to provide domestic violence and sexual assault outreach services to the WCSU community.


All services are still available, either in-person or remotely. If in-person, clients and advocates must be wearing a mask at all times until further notice. Advocates are also available remotely for counseling, advocacy, and educational programs. We are offering services to new or returning clients. To schedule an appointment for counseling or to connect with an advocate, please email Cara Mackler at cara.m@wcogd.org. Our 24-hour confidential hotlines are also available at 203-731-5204 and 203-731-5206. Make sure to follow us on Instagram @wcogd_oncampus.


The Women’s Center staff are a free and confidential resource for individuals of any gender identity on and off campus who have experienced or are experiencing dating/domestic violence or sexual violence or any other major life transitions. The Women’s Center staff are not mandated to report disclosures to any other office on campus, including the Title IX office. Our office on campus is located in White Hall 003A.
