STAMFORD, CT – In late May, at an awards ceremony at the New Canaan Library, The Center for Sexual Assault Crisis Counseling and Education (The Center) received a $5,000 grant from the New Canaan Community Foundation. A recognition that sexual violence is a problem in every community, this generous grant will fund The Center’s prevention education programming in New Canaan and surrounding communities. An ongoing goal of The Center’s education department is to reach different audiences in the community to raise awareness of the problem as well as the resources available to those affected by sexual violence. Part of that initiative includes instructing police officers, social workers, health teachers and parents, in addition to our in-school programs. Prevention education delivered by trained professionals is especially important given that 70% of Connecticut residents report that their parents did not discuss sexual assault with them, and nationally one in four (1:4) women and one in six (1:6) men will experience sexual assault in their lifetime.

The New Canaan Community Foundation makes targeted, high impact grants to local nonprofits working to address the needs of our community, awarding approximately $1,000,000 in grants annually to nearly 100 nonprofits providing a wide range of services to the elderly, youth, those in need, the arts, and the environment.
