The Town of Redding held a ceremony late last week recognizing October as Domestic Violence Awareness month. In the last year, 40 cases of victims of domestic violence from Redding were referred to the Womens Center of Greater Danbury. The Women's Center also provides educational programs in Redding schools as dating violence is an issue among teens. The Redding social services Director, Angelica Fontanez, also serves as a resource for residents. The Womens Center has a crisis hotline and 2-1-1 can also provide assistance and direction.
