A friend introduced me to the staff of The Center for Women and Families of Eastern Fairfield County a few years ago, and at that first meeting, I knew I had to find the time to help them spread the word about the valuable work they do daily, turning victims of domestic abuse, sexual assault and bullying into survivors. Many of these attacks happen behind closed doors, and what I have learned are those doors know no economic boundaries. Victims are hiding in high-rise projects, middle-class capes and magnificent mansions. And through the dedication and professionalism of the staff at The Center, many of these victims find the courage to seek help and save themselves and their children from future assaults. It is my honor to volunteer with this wonderful non-profit.
