• Diner Day 2016 a huge success!

    Our friends from GE Tax, GE EFS, and Synchrony Financial made our December 7th Diner Day a great success. They served up delish dishes at Lushe's Parkway Diner in Stamford, including Lushe's famous doughnuts and coffee in a limited edition Diner Day mug. BIG thanks to all the GE and Synchrony folks who volunteered for a shift, and especially to Beto (pictured with Domus Executive Director Mike Duggan, left), Robert, Rick, and Marianne for their cheerleading, cajoling, and superior organizing.

  • Domus again re-certified as trauma-informed organization

    We're proud of our entire Domus staff for again being certified by the Sanctuary Institute for creating an effective trauma-informed environment where our youth can heal from trauma. This is Domus' second three-year certification. All staff members receive ongoing, regular training in ways that we, no matter our job, can contribute to a climate where youth feel emotionally and physically safe. Special thanks to the Sanctuary Core Team of employees who led the certification process. Click here for more information about our                                                                                         trauma-informed approach.
