A grant of $10,000.00 has been awarded by the Amiel and Mary Anne Zak Public Service Fund at the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving to the Network Against Domestic Abuse in Enfield to support the Community & Youth Outreach Program in Suffield.
“With this grant from the Amiel and Mary Anne Zak Public Service Fund at the Hartford Foundation we will be able to continue to provide community outreach and prevention education programming in Suffield,” said Karen Foley O’Connor, CEO of The Network. “The board of directors and our staff thank the Amiel and Mary Anne Zak Public Service Fund and the Hartford Foundation for its support to help us educate our youth and create safer communities.”
The Network sees an increasing need to educate people about how to stay safe and sustainable in their communities. Our community and youth educators provide prevention education, particularly in the schools where children and youth need to be learning early and repeatedly about healthy relationships, dealing with emotions and dating/intimate violence prevention.
The Network is north central Connecticut’s leader in preventing family violence by providing services to victims of domestic abuse and promoting healthy relationships through education with an expressed commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. It provides court advocacy services in the Hartford and Rockville courts and community one-on-one counseling and support groups. The Network operates a 24/7 hotline and 15-bed safe home for survivors and their children. All services provided by The Network are free. For more information visit thenetworkct.org.
