In 2004 a group of community members came together to create an organization that can assist and educate other community members in raising awareness against domestic violence.


Our Mission

To promote the education, awareness, and prevention of domestic abuse in the community of Darien, CT by providing education on domestic violence and on the services available to victims as well as their families through programs and events, and to foster positive interpersonal relationships in the community and provide local families tools to resolve conflict during exigent stress-points in their lives. 

The nature of the activities conducted and the purposes promoted or carried out by the corporation are exclusively charitable and educational, entitling the Corporation to exemption under the provisions of Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, or such corresponding section or sections as may from time to time be in force.
