In response to the need for broader and more culturally-appropriate outreach within the Spanish-speaking communities in Fairfield County, DVCC launched EsperanzaCT, Connecticut’s first Spanish language website and 24-hour service line for victims of domestic abuse. The comprehensive online service center and round-the-clock phone line provide Spanish-speaking victims with immediate access to information and assistance in their native language.
