Project Details

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve, the implications for victims of domestic violence across Connecticut are becoming increasingly clear, with month over month assessments showing more victims at heightened risk. To address this, 4-CT is supporting the Connecticut Coalition Against Domestic Violence (CCADV)’s enhanced victim advocacy and support programs across the state. These programs offer access to help through CCADV's 18 member organizations 24/7. Despite the heightened need, CCADV's ability to ensure steady funding has diminished as fundraisers have been cancelled or suspended altogether and support from state and federal contracts only partially fills these gaps. To ensure adherence to social distancing guidelines, shelter protocols are shifting as well, so a portion of 4-CT's grant will provide funding for additional hotel and transportation costs imposed by the pandemic.
