Learn the role of CFJ’s crisis navigators during a virtual event

The Center for Family Justice's headquarters is located at 753 Fairfield Ave. in Bridgeport.

Crisis navigators perform the most critical volunteer roles at The Center for Family Justice (CFJ). They are the first people to interact with walk-in clients seeking free and confidential services helping victims of domestic and sexual abuse.

As CFJ’s first point of contact, it’s imperative that the navigators build trust, foster a safe environment, and use trauma-informed approaches that are essential elements in providing effective services and support to both adults and children who have experienced trauma.

Kasey Borjas, CFJ’s crisis advocacy program manager, and Amanda Posila, its director of prevention and community engagement, are offering an online informational session about the role and the training that is required.

By Connecticut law, CFJ requires all volunteers and interns wishing to engage in face-to-face client contact to complete a 40-plus hour, state-mandated certification course. CFJ offers this virtual course three times a year in June, September and January.
