Mission

Women & Family Life Center empowers women and their families to face challenges and life transitions with grace and dignity.

 

Background
Women & Family Life provides services to individuals from throughout the central Connecticut shoreline who are facing acute crisis, require support for the transitions in life, or are seeking community and personal growth. Our purpose is to help women, youth, and families connect with each other, and with related services in our community, through education, support, wellness, and referral services.
 
The Center originally came together as a community outreach center for women and children at the Peace & Justice Center of St. George’s Church in Guilford in 1989. In 1991, the Center secured non-profit status, the first Executive Director was hired, and programs to help Shoreline families were expanded to meet the mission. The organization moved to its present location at 96 Fair Street in 1998 after a successful capital campaign. Our programs and services have been growing ever since.
Impact

Together we are making lifelong change! Your donation sets in motion staggering bravery as women conquer their fears, learn new skills, and take triumphant steps into a new life.

A local business owner gives back her time and profits to many charities because 20 years ago your donations gave her a path out of an abusive relationship. Domestic violence is the leading cause of injury to girls & women ages 15-44. This year you helped more than 50 women take the first brave steps to creating a safe future for themselves and their children.  

Ten years ago a struggling teen “heading down the wrong path” took the girls empowerment program your donations made possible; today she is a happy, successful bank manager. By age 15, girls are twice as likely to be come depressed than boys. This year 66 girls found their inner strength through Girls Coach Girls Run.

More than 2/3 of new mothers stop breastfeeding due to problems and lack of support, increasing the risk of health complications to both mother and child. Thank you for ensuring new mothers have a place to replace exhaustion and panic with joy and enrichment and to overcome serious issues such as postpartum depression.

At least 50% of people who are eligible for free legal services are turned away due to lack of capacity. Your donations support the only free legal consultation program on the Shoreline. Lawyer Time guided men and women through difficult issues related to divorce, custody, protection orders, real estate, and job loss.

Your donations each year are the reason more than 1,000 community members have a safe place to regroup after life throws a curve ball or to find their way through one of life’s difficult transitions.  Together we provided: 228 one-on-one consultations, 170 hours of emotional support, 140 hours of girls' empowerment, 84 hours of financial education, and 75 hours of parent education.

Needs

In 2016 Women & Family Life Center will celebrate its 25th anniversary. We have much to celebrate and are proud of our long history of being the first open door to women and families on the Shoreline who are facing difficult transitions or crisis. Preparation for this milestone began in 2012 by taking stock of our strengths, areas of improvement, and opportunities. We identified three major areas in which to work to create deep and lasting community impact:

Programs: Since 2012, we launched 8 new programs to provide a continuity of support addressing emotional, legal, and financial support for women facing a variety of transitions including domestic violence and divorce. We also launched programs for new mothers and retirees as there were a dearth of programming to help combat the isolation and fear these transitions can cause. Next steps include further expanding our programs to include back to work programs, parenting support, and more prevention programs. We also will work to expand our network of referring agencies to include both public and private providers to ensure that we can reach any person who needs help.

Organizational Capacity: The Center, like many small nonprofits has not kept pace with best practices for upgrading technology. Through the recession we saw a 30% increase in requests for assistance married with flat or decreased funding levels. One way we weathered this time period was to delay IT upgrades and to use free software for our fledgling online registration system. These systems, which are now five years old, are not able to offer the level of security needed, are difficult to manage, and do not have all the capability we need. These issues are significantly reducing our staff efficiency and are our biggest barriers to expanding program and fundraising capacity.

Facility: To ensure that our historic facility remains a safe, comforting place for women and families to navigate difficult life transitions, we must undertake deferred maintenance, including foundation work, making the facility energy efficient and ensuring it looks like the safe haven it is. We must also create a vision for expanded use of this special place to ensure that we have adequate space for both ongoing and new programs.

 

CEO Statement

Dear Friends,

I am struck by the depth and breadth of the needs we address in the little house on Fair Street and I am blessed to witness our neighbors rise to the difficult challenges life throws at them.

As the economy lags, we continue to see the stress it puts on women and their families and it is clear that we need to do more. In 2012 we developed a new strategic plan based on the observation that many life transitions have emotional, legal, and financial components and that our programming should include each of these elements as well. Thanks to your support, our we are already seeing this plan at work.

I am proud of our success and grateful for your support. However, there is still much to accomplish. It is our vision that all women in transition will be able to develop the skills and confidence to move from crisis to new success. To that end, we are planning for the future to ensure that the Center’s capacity continues to meet community needs.

I hope you will continue this journey with us as a donor, a volunteer, and/or a participant. Thank you again for your support!

This economic downturn has been challenging for so many, and the demand for our services has increased. A large portion of our operating funds is received via direct support from the community (and we receive no state or federal funding), and many of our donors share their appreciation of their investment going directly to help our local community. We will continue to strive to provide high quality services, and depend on the generous support of our donors to continue to enhance and expand what we do.
Board Chair Statement

As Women & Family Life Center enters its 24th year, we are very proud of the progress we have made in serving our communities along the shoreline of Connecticut. We love that we touch so many women and families for a wide range of reasons.

Women helping, advocating, and supporting other women are for us how we can make a difference in the world in which we live. Women & Family Life Center epitomizes this belief. We are also proud to have the support of so many men in our community who serve as Chefs in our annual fundraiser and on our Board and committees.

Although most of our constituents are women, these men understand that helping women helps families and makes a stronger community. We welcome anyone who wishes to help with our mission as we work together toward to ensure that within our safe and intimate setting on the Connecticut Shoreline women and families are able to access a strong network of support, women and families move from crisis to new strength, and that life transitions become a time of positive change rather than isolation, fear, and financial distress.

I love that we touch so many women/families for a wide range of reasons.  Women helping, advocating, and supporting other women are for me how we can make a difference in the world we live in. Women & Family Life Center epitomizes this belief.

CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments

With our extreme weather in the last two years, many of us have gained a deeper understanding of what if feels like to be vulnerable -- cut off from each other, and from the resources we rely on. For many, we got a reminder of how much we need each other and how powerful it is to come together as a community.

All year long, people feel this way in our community. I can’t tell you how many times, when people come to us they say, “I don’t know if I am in the right place…” Our answer is simply – “You are.”

Our programs give women and families the emotional support, skills, and knowledge they need not just to survive, but to thrive through any transition. If we don’t have just the right program, our extensive referral program assures they get to the support programs they need.

I encourage you to become a part of Women & Family Life as a volunteer, a donor, or a board member.

It was comforting to see other parents going through the same things I was and I could learn from them. She offers a class with a fun learning and entertaining environment for the kids and parents. The moms in my group definitely bonded and will most likely be friends for a very long time. I really enjoyed going and spending time with my child in a way that is so much different than at home."

Knowing that there is support, friendship, tears and laughter shared is all important. Thank you."

 

Description

We respond to approximately 500 individuals each year needing assistance. These on-on-one consultations provide everything from a quick connection to more detailed plans for dealing with a crisis. If we are unable to provide a program or service ourselves, we connect the person with a local community service.

The Center also partners with Domestic Violence Services of New Haven and Guilford Youth & Family Services to provide the only domestic violence services on the Shoreline. The Center serves as a safe place for women to begin their journey to a new life and access to domestic violence counseling, legal services, and other resources necessary to make this difficult life change.

“Pat” called with a tricky legal/mental health issue in her family. She had been frantically searching for some help and had hit many roadblocks with every agency she called. One of the agencies she called suggested she call us. We were able to help her parse out her needs and through our Laywer Time program, we were able to find her a lawyer that had expertise in the legal and civil aspects of her situation. Pat later called to say thank you: "I called everyone I could think of and they all said the same thing: we can't help you. You did not say that. I can't thank you enough!"

“Cheryl” came to us for information about divorce. She is in an abusive marriage.

Subsequently she requested a scholarship in order to enroll in our self-defense program and she also plans to attend the first meeting of Empowering Women group next month.
 
 "Smart About Money" is helping me become conscious of my spending habits and gotten me to have a less critical reaction to myself and my current financial situation, which has in turn allowed me to make some small positive changes.”

From a participant: "I just moved here from North Carolina 6 months ago. I am a writer with three children ages 3 months, 6 and 9. I joined the Women Writers Group and I am so happy to be able to meet with these women weekly. It is the one night out, away from my family that is just for me. I have found a home and new friends at the Women and Family Life Center. I feel very lucky."

Program Comments
CEO Comments

Women & Family Life Center provides a safe, intimate place for women and families to face crises or major life transitions. In short, we help people when they feel their most vulnerable.

 

With two hurricanes and off-season snow storms in the last two years, I think we all got a taste of what it is like to be vulnerable, cut-off from each other, and from the resources we rely on. For many, we got a reminder of how much we need each other and how powerful it is to come together as a community.

 

All year long, people feel this way in our community. Women and men enter our door with the stamp of fear on their faces, or the phone rings and there are just tears on the other end.  

 

Life has thrown them for a loop and they frightened, overwhelmed, and feel alone and they don’t know where to turn. I can’t tell you how many times, someone comes to us and says “I don’t know if I am in the right place…” Our answer is simply – “You are.”  

 

Our programs give women & families the emotional support, and skills & knowledge they need to not just survive, but to thrive through any transition. If we don’t have just the right program, our extensive referral program assures they get to just the right place.

 

I invite you to become involved in Women & Family Life, as a donor, a volunteer, or board member. W&FL gives each of just the right place to be, giving us the opportunity to come together and to ensure that our neighbors have a safe, supportive place to go when life throws them a loop.

Comments
CEO Comments
Women & Family Life Center has experienced a significant increase in the number of community members needing support, counseling, and referral services. At the same time, our fee-based programs have lost participation due to economic pressures. We are proud to have been able to respond by increasing efficiencies and decreasing costs to meet the increasing demand on a flat budget. We are continuing to find ways to invest in our infrastructure to increase efficiency. 
 
We are not required to conduct an audit and have not undertaken a full financial audit due to budget constraints. However, our financial management is of the highest standards. We employ an external bookkeeping service, have an external CPA review our books annually and complete our annual tax returns, and have a financial professional as Treasurer who provides oversight on a monthly basis.

Nurture Children & Youth

When families, schools and communities take the view that children and youth are valued and respected assets to society, they necessarily support environments that nurture youth development. Children raised to embrace positive social values, to seek self-understanding, and to value their self-worth grow to become community-minded young adults with a sense of belonging and a belief in their resiliency. See how you can help our community's children grow into tomorrow's leaders.
