Women & Family Life Center is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) located in Guilford, CT and has been serving women and families on the Connecticut Shoreline since 1991.
W&FLC Programs Include:
Guided Assistance Program (GAP) - GAP provides personalized support and referrals for women and families facing difficult life challenges. The Center’s Referral Navigators work to directly connect participants to community resources spanning crisis services, social services, mental health, financial and legal services. Through GAP, a participant learns how to outline her personal or family needs and to create an action plan. GAP is a unique service, not offered at any other organization on the Shoreline, providing services to anyone regardless of income from any of the following 16 towns that we serve: Branford, Chester, Clinton, Deep River, East Haven, East Lyme, Essex, Guilford, Killingworth, Lyme, Madison, North Branford, North Haven, Old Lyme, Old Saybrook and Westbrook.
Financial Consults - Meet individually with a volunteer Financial Coach who will work with you to set up an action plan to resolve a financial situation you are in to empower yourself to make better financial decisions and take control of your economic independence and success.
Appointments are available via phone or by video via Zoom to meet one-on-one with an attorney to discuss your legal questions with regard to a civil, divorce, custody or other legal matters and to better understand your rights and the legal process.
Safe Search - Are you a person looking for a safe place to make calls or use the internet?
If you are a person without access to a phone or computer or are living in a home where you fear your computer/phone use is being monitored you can come to the W&FLC and use a computer and phone. This can be for calling counselors, lawyers, researching jobs, revising and printing your resumes. Computer, internet, printer, copies, fax and phone are available. In addition to a secure location to keep documents for future use.
