Resiliency Center of Newtown

NRC_Logo_NEWThe Resiliency Center of Newtown is a program of Tuesday’s Children, formed in the aftermath of the December 14, 2012 tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, CT. Our mission is to provide long-term support and healing assistance to those impacted on that day and forever after. One of the lessons learned from other tragedies (e.g., 9/11, Oklahoma City, etc.) is that it is critical to provide effective long-term services to communities impacted by traumatic events.

Implementing Tuesday’s Children’s long-term healing model, the Resiliency Center of Newtown offers a variety of programs, services, and events designed to help those suffering from trauma to recover and move forward with their lives in a positive way. The Resiliency Center of Newtown will empower the residents of Newtown and surrounding areas to help one another restore a sense of emotional well-being in themselves and their community.
