Review for Connect Inc., New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

CONNECT has been a leader in advocacy around ending violence against women in our communities. Their staff is exceptional - dedicated, smart, talented, brave and innovative. Their programs have led the way for other organizations. They provide the highest quality of service to individuals in need and to the organizations they train and support.
When women were being killed by ex-boyfriends/husbands in great numbers in the summer of 2005, CONNECT held a moving press conference on the steps of city hall attended by over a hundred advocates. When a child welfare worker has a case involving domestic violence, they know what to do because of the training provided by CONNECT and the policy advocacy done by the agency that put proceedures in place to handle these cases.
They have done pioneering work around the response to domestic violence in the faith based community.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I've referred many victims of domestic violence to them for help, knowing they would get compassionate and competent help. Their staff goes above the call of duty.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

not change anything. They need additional funding to keep up their amazing work.

Role:  Professional with expertise in this field & I worked with survivors of domestic violence to train and support them in shaping policy around the issue.
