Mission Statement

CWEALF advocates for and empowers women and girls in Connecticut, especially those who are underserved or marginalized. We work to create an equitable society where women and girls thrive.


CWEALF provides an information, referral and advocacy service while also training and empowering women in Connecticut to advocate for themselves. Each year, CWEALF helps thousands of women and low-income people navigate legal and social service systems. By incorporating these experiences into our public policy and advocacy work, CWEALF is able to offer innovative approaches to issues affecting women and gender equity throughout the state.

I loved my time volunteering for CWEALF! The organization’s mission is great, the staff is wonderful, and the volunteer work is meaningful. I volunteered for the Information and Referral line and really enjoyed getting to talk to clients, offer them important information and referrals, and know that I was making a difference in their lives. The staff at CWEALF is fantastic. They are incredibly dedicated to their work, knowledgeable, friendly, and always available when you have questions. They went out of their way to make me feel like I was part of the team. I also volunteered at CWEALF events, including their annual awards events. They were always very organized, gave great direction to volunteers, and made me feel like what I was doing was valuable. I highly recommend volunteering with CWEALF.

CWEALF is a place where you get to make a difference in the lives of women and men who are struggling with their issues. You not only learn about the legal system but how to empower people so they can solve their own problems. I definitely recommend volunteering at CWEALF.
