nonprofits,local leaders & Grt.New Haven business sharing information
Staff members Amie Melillo and Sabine Romsaint of the Family Based Recovery Program and Raycean Wright and Shannon Ryan of the Teen Outreach Program met with State Senators and Representatives to enlist their support of Family Centered Services of CT at the Legislative regional lobby day. Non-profit organizations from across CT met with their representatives to discuss the impact that state cuts will make to their programs and to encourage their support.
Family CT will be celebrating a milestone this year, our 40th anniversary. Family CT has been a leader in providing free home-based parenting education, domestic violence counseling and care coordination for children with special health care needs. This past year we reached over 1800 families a 12% increase over 2015 and the need continues to grow. It is because our services are free and home-based that we can reach many under-served families who would not be able to accept services otherwise.
A special thank you to Jame Albis, State Representative from East Haven and Senator Ed Gomes of Bridgeport and Senator Gary Winfield of New Haven for meeting with our staff to learn more about our organization.
