Each spring, Greenwich House holds 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.
