Governor Malloy and his wife recently held a reception at the Governor’s mansion in Hartford to benefit The Center for Family Justice.

At the event, Janet and Jacob Navon of Westport announced their $50,000 challenge: If The Center raises $50,000, the Navons will donate $50,000 to The Center.

The Center is transitioning into our state’s first Family Justice Center, and the 85th in the world, bringing all services under one roof — police, prosecutors, civil/legal, social services — for victims of domestic abuse and sexual assault. The Center also runs satellite offices in Fairfield, Monroe, Stratford and Trumbull.

For more information about the Navons’ challenge, contact Sarah Lubarsky at slubarsky@centerforfamilyjustice.org or 203-334-6154, ext. 31.
