Please read the following letter from the Center for Family Justice regarding their current efforts and operations:

Dear First Selectman Kellogg,

Thank you for all that you are doing to keep the residents of Monroe healthy and safe as we cope with this unprecedented public health crisis.

I am writing today to ask your help in sharing a critically important public safety message with your constituents.

As you may know, The Center for Family Justice, recently closed its main Bridgeport offices in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Our staff is now working remotely to serve our clients in crisis. They are doing an incredible job under extremely difficult circumstances.

While we have been working diligently to convey this information through the news media and our social media channels, it is vital to reach as many people as possible who may be living in abusive situations.

Domestic violence program throughout the state are concerned victims may lack the ability to safely reach out for help as they are forced to stay in close quarters with an abuser.

To that end, I am asking if you could do the following:

·         Please share our 24/7 hotline numbers through your community’s social media channels, web sites, community letters and during any public briefings you may hold during the coming days. Our hotline numbers are:

Domestic Violence: 203-384-9559

Sexual Violence: 203-333-2233

Spanish Hotline: 888-568-8332

·         Any victim in immediate life-threatening crisis should call 911.

·         If a victim feels unsafe making a phone call, we urge them to connect with us through direct message on our social media channels:

o    Facebook (best option) @CenterforFamilyJustice

o    Instagram: @CenterforFamilyJusticeCT

o    Twitter: @CFJCT

We also encourage victims living in abusive situations to establish safe words or signals with friends or family that can be shared if they are in danger, so that those people can summon help.

I sincerely appreciate any help you are able to give us in conveying this vitally important message to your constituents.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions on how our team can support anyone who may be in crisis because of domestic or sexual violence.

With my continued best wishes for your health and well-being,


Debra A. Greenwood
