Auxiliary membership makes a difference
The backbone of Child & Family Agency is the 600 plus volunteers organized into six auxiliaries throughout southeastern Connecticut. The membership of the Essex River Valley, Lyme/Old Lyme, East Lyme/Niantic, New London/Waterford, Groton and Mystic/Noank/Stonington Auxiliaries continue the legacy of that first group of Connecticut women who in 1809 witnessed inhumanity and acted to stop it.
Our members generously volunteer their time and talent caring for children, supporting fundraising events and participating in education services.
From garden, house, interior design and kitchen tours, to teas and luncheons, Touch a Truck, the Annual Tag Sale, fashion shows, gold tournaments, and the charity bookshop are just some of the events organized and operated by our amazing auxiliary volunteers.
Your membership enables Child & Family Agency to continue to provide vital services for children and their families, enhancing their potential to become caring, productive members of society. Because of you, 18,000 children and their family members are taken care of every single day.
