We are living in a time of intolerable and persistent injustice and violence towards people of color. The racial divide in our communities is widening on all fronts - unequal access to jobs, housing, food, healthcare, justice and due process. Our hearts hurt and we long to help.

The Women and Families Center (WFC) has long been an advocate for and supporter of our most vulnerable populations and those who have been discriminated against because of race, gender and ethnic background. Since 1889, WFC has served women and families in our communities who have experienced similar injustices. In light of the senseless violence against African American citizens of this country, we rededicate ourselves to our mission to promote equity and quality of life through services that foster empowerment and independence.

WFC stands with all individuals and communities to condemn the senseless brutality against individuals of color. We join our fellow service providers in Meriden, Wallingford, Middlesex and New Haven Counties to support, educate and advocate for real social change to rid our communities of systemic racism and violence.

How to Protect Yourself From COVID-19

Older adults and people who have severe underlying medical conditions like heart or lung disease or diabetes seem to be at higher risk for developing more serious complications from COVID-19 illness. 

Know How it Spreads

•        There is currently no vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).

•        The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus.

•        The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person. 

o    Between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet). 

o     Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.

•        These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.

Take steps to Protect Yourself

Clean your hands often

•        Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.

•        If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.

•        Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

Avoid close contact

•        Avoid close contact with people who are sick

•        Put distance between yourself and other people if COVID-19 is spreading in your community. This is especially important for people who are at higher risk of getting sick.

Take steps to Protect Others

Stay home if you’re sick

•      Stay home if you are sick, except to get medical care. Learn what to do if you are sick.

Cover coughs and sneezes Clean and disinfect

•        Clean AND disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily. This includes tables, doorknobs, light switches, counter tops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, and sinks.

•        If surfaces are dirty, clean them: Use detergent or soap and water prior to disinfection.
