On May 22, 2017, Greenwich House will hold a luncheon to directly benefit the Children’s Safety Project (CSP). CSP helps children heal from their trauma of abuse through supportive therapy and by teaching them the life-skills required to become self-reliant and lead productive lives. The program works towards breaking the destructive cycle of domestic violence that often repeats in future generations if not addressed professionally. 

Without the services of CSP, these children are at higher risk of continued abuse, addiction and other serious health problems and, as they become parents themselves, the mistreatment of their own children. For the families that rely on this program, there is a variance between their income and the cost of therapy; most subsist on an annual household income below $15,000. Our goal is to raise funds to help shrink this gap and as a community help these children manage the risks and break the generational cycle of abuse.

At the CSP Luncheon, Anthony Salerno, Ph.D. will join us to share his insights from 30 years of study and private practice as a child psychologist. Dr. Salerno has been at the national forefront of trauma-informed care. At the luncheon, Dr. Salerno will discuss the new approach and the challenges and successes that come from the integration of behavioral and physical health services, and the role we, as individuals, can play in helping our youngest and most vulnerable neighbors.
