Our wish?
A world free from sexual violence.

We counsel victims and survivors as they process their experiences of sexual violence from the past, we advocate for them as they navigate the circumstances of the present, and we educate our communities to prevent sexual violence in the future.

Support youth in our community.

Children and young adults in our communities experience sexual violence, sex trafficking, and abuse. Donate now to give young people the support, advocacy, and care they need to move forward after trauma—and prevent it from happening in the first place.

Be a lifeline for those in our communities who have been the victims of sexual violence by supporting The Rowan Center this holiday season. Together, we can make lower Fairfield County healthier and safer for everyone—including all of our children and youth.

Counseling

We respect the right of each person to choose their own path in the healing process. We offer free individual counseling sessions to primary and secondary victims of sexual violence, ages 14+, in English, Spanish and Haitian-Creole.

Education

It is part of our mission to eliminate sexual violence in as many ways as possible. Our education curriculum is designed from the knowledge that education and awareness can prevent and/or reduce sexual violence in our communities.
