The Town of Stratford Community Services has opened its doors to residents who are struggling to cope with the events that transpired at Sandy Hook Elementary School on Friday, Dec. 14.
Community Services counselors are available Monday, Dec. 17 and Tuesday, Dec. 18, from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. at the Birdseye Municipal Complex, 468 Birdseye Street.
Mayor John A. Harkins encourages, “residents to take advantage of our trusted community resource.”
Stratford Community Services has been providing children and their families counseling services for more than thirty years.
In the wake of the Newtown tragedy, counselors will be on hand this week to address questions like “How do I respond to my child’s questions? Or “I’m feeling out of sorts and I didn’t even know anyone involved”.
Community Services Administrator Tamara Trojanowski said “We are here for you. You do not have to be alone.”
Counselors are also available by appointment weekdays through 8:00 p.m. For more information, call 203 -385-4095.
