New Options to Violent Action

Carolina Grijalba-Rodriguez coordinates the New Options to Violent Action (NOVA) program at the Association of Religious Communities (ARC).

New Options to Violent Action (NOVA) is for men, age 18 or older, who have witnessed domistic violence as a child or are otherwise at high risk of using abusive behaviors against an intimate partner. NOVA participants are self-referred or may hear about the program from another source (for example: clergy, friend, family member, graduate of NOVA, or therapist).

The program is open to all in need from Danbury and the surrounding area: Bethel, Brookfield, Newtown, New Milford, New Fairfield, Redding, Ridgefield, Sherman and Wilton.

Confidentiality is strictly observed. Anyone in NOVA can be assured their privacy will be respected. The first step is the most important of all. You have taken that first step. We will support you in every way to successfully learn, grow, and live in a peaceable home.

Class Meeting times:         Wednesday 7:00 to 8:30 pm

Individual Cost:                 $40 per class for 12 weeks
