Cramer & Anderson once again has a team led by Partner Jennifer Collins participating in SafeWalk, which unites the community around the Danbury-based Center for Empowerment and Education’s mission to end domestic violence and raise funds to support its programs.
SafeWalk is a virtual event in which individual participants and teams walk, run, bike, hopscotch, or move in any other way that adds up to the equivalent of a 4K during the weekend of Sept. 30 to Oct. 2—raising funds along the way through online donations.

“As always, the money raised from this event stays in our community and is used to support our no cost programs and services. We need the support of everyone in the community, so please consider participating in this year’s event,” the SafeWalk page explains.
“The Center plays such a vital role in western Connecticut and its vision of ending violence against individuals and families, and fostering equality and empowerment, deserves universal support and our donations,” Attorney Collins said.
“The Center’s programs are indispensable and include providing confidential services to victims of domestic violence and sexual assault at no cost, staffing 24-hour hotlines for domestic violence and sexual assault, and operating Patricia House, a 13-bed shelter for individuals and families fleeing violence in their homes,” she added.
About The Center for Empowerment and Education
The Center for Empowerment and Education helps save and rebuild lives and create safer communities.
Since its founding in 1975, The Center for Empowerment and Education has been a safe haven as the sole provider of services to victims of domestic and sexual violence in the Northern Fairfield and Southern Litchfield County areas. (The nonprofit was previously called the Women’s Center of Greater Danbury.)
Each year, the Center serves over 30,000 individuals from area communities. Its free and confidential services are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. The Center’s key areas of focus include emergency shelter and support services, counseling and advocacy, crisis intervention, and community education, primary prevention and training.
All funds provided to the Center support its critically needed domestic violence, sexual assault and resource services for adults and children in a 13-town service area, including Bethel, Bridgewater, Brookfield, Danbury, Kent, New Fairfield, New Milford, Newtown, Redding, Ridgefield, Roxbury, Sherman, and Washington.
