  • Senators Booker, Murphy, Blumenthal at Domus
    for juvenile justice roundtable discussion
     

    Booker Murphy Blum 2upUS Senator Cory Booker (NJ) and our two CT senators, Chris Murphy and Richard Blumenthal, asked Domus to host a juvenile justice roundtable discussion on June 20th to hear from young people who've been in the system and discussion challenges and solutions. Four Domus youth spoke about their justice system involvement and how they've overcome the challenges in their lives. We're very proud of them and honored to have hosted a rich discussion about ways to keep youth out of the system with supports and pro-social activities before their lives get too unstable, as well as ways to support youth once they get out of the system to ensure they have what they need to immediately get the job, education, or services to reach their goals.

  • Volunteers make every day special

    camp bike 2upVolunteers make great things possible! During summer camp, these volunteers inspired our campers with a book about colors, then invited all 200 campers to paint a bike frame. They then built the bike out (with the help of our resident bike experts in the Trafigura Work & Learn youth employment program), and voila! A cool, custom ride! Want to volunteer and join the fun?
