2008 Annual Report
This past year has brought about a paradigm shift in our thinking about child abuse. Our mission has been to prevent child abuse and neglect, but can we possibly consider ending child abuse? At our annual retreat, responses to this question were unanimous- YES, child abuse is preventable and YES, we can end child abuse. This is our vision.

Fall 2008 Newsletter
It's not everyday that the staff of Family CT see smiling faces everywhere they turn and hear parents and children laughing freely. This is what makes Family CT's annual Family Appreciation Day so special. It is a time for families to relax and enjoy each other's company. Children love to have their faces painted and compete in potato sack races. They create drawings at the arts & crafts table and get messy decorating cupcakes. It is a stress-free day that helps us recognize family strengths and reinforce positive parenting.

Spring 2008 Newsletter
Hands are not for hitting and Words are not for hurting
Family CT’s Child Empowerment Groups are filled with strong, bright and resilient children. It is hard to imagine that they have witnessed and endured domestic violence and child abuse and neglect. This ten week group helps children heal from their histories of family violence through educational and therapeutic activities. The theme of the groups is “Hands are not for hitting and words are not for hurting.” The tree in the pictures to the right holds cut-outs of hands and lips that contain positive statements such as “hug mom”, “say I'm sorry”, “say I love you”, “help people”, and “tell a friend she looks pretty”. This tree served as a reminder to children in each session that hurtful and violent behaviors are not o.k. and there are many positive and safe ways to express their feelings.
