The 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.
The organization provides trauma-informed assistance and referral services, as well as community outreach programs of various kinds. These services are intended to be complimentary, not duplicative and are designed to support the following community members:
