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.

REMOTE SERVICES AVAILABLE

During the campus closure, advocates are available online for counseling, advocacy, and educational programs. We are offering services to new or returning clients and educational classes via phone, Zoom, WebEx, or other platforms. To schedule an appointment for counseling or to connect with an advocate, please email Sydney Trezza at trezzas@wcsu.edu or Cara Mackler at cara.m@wcogd.org.
