Serving the eight towns of lower Fairfield County since 1979, The Rowan Center provides free, 24-hour confidential help to men, women and children who have experienced sexual assault. We can be there from the time the victim enters the emergency room, throughout making a police statement, to preliminary court proceedings for trial. We can also be with the victims as the healing takes place, delivering goal-oriented counseling.
Additionally, The Rowan Center provides age and developmentally appropriate awareness and prevention education from children ages 4-18 and for the community at large.
The Rowan Center supports eight town/cities in Lower Fairfield County including: Darien, Greenwich, New Canaan, Norwalk, Stamford, Weston, Westport, and Wilton. And, all of our services are available in English and Spanish.
“The Rowan Center has been a huge help to my staff of clinicians in educating them about the harsh realities of sexual assault. In addition to providing critical information to my team for our work with children and families, The Rowan Center has been able to step in and provide direct support to some of our clients. We are very fortunate to have this resource.”
– Dr. Chris Bogart, Executive Director, The Southfield Center for Development
“We are appreciative of the time, energy and passion The Rowan Center brings to educating our juniors about Sexual Violence. It is imperative to discuss the topics of boundaries, consent, and resources for help with our students so they can make the best sexual decisions both now and in the future. I am so very proud of my students and the discussions The Rowan Center fosters in class, which can truly make a positive difference within our society. We look forward to continuing our partnership with The Rowan Center; it is so important for students to put a face and a name to an organization that offers help and resources.”
