FAIRFIELD COUNTY WOMEN'S CENTER AT NCC

Description

The Mission of The Fairfield County Women's Center (FCWC) at Norwalk Community College is to promote the advancement of women through educational programs and resources and to increase awareness of womenís issues in the community, workplace, and home. The goals of the Fairfield County Women's Center are to foster a supportive environment that promotes empowerment, equity, and self actualization. The Fairfield County Women's Center is a central clearinghouse for information about and for women of Fairfield County. We provide information and referrals to most human service agencies in Fairfield County.
