Safe Futures strategic conference moved to Waterford

Safe futures has changed the location of its Family Justice Center community strategy sessions, scheduled for Thursday and Friday, to Filomena's Restaurant, 262 Boston Post Road in Waterford.

The sessions will take place from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Thursday and 8:30 to 2:30 p.m. on Friday.

The two-day event was scheduled to take place at Connecticut College, but Safe Futures Chief Executive Officer Katherine Verano said she was notified Wednesday that the college is curtailing activities due to the threat of COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus.

The Family Justice Center would provide comprehensive services for victims of domestic violence who need help with multiple issues, including legal problems, counseling, housing, employment and education.

The two-day strategic planning session will be led by Casey Gwinn and Gael Strack, both of whom are co-founders of Alliance for Hope International. Strack ran the first Family Justice Center in San Diego, Calif. Verano said both would be traveling to Connecticut as scheduled and were expected to arrive Thursday.
