About Youth Services
My name is Rachel Cunningham, the Director of Youth Services and the Janus Center. I am excited to be a part of the team. Since I began my position as Youth Service Director in October 2015, we have been strengthening our services, improving our outreach, and reaching more of the youth and families who need our services. The transition has brought a new energy and zeal to the Janus Center. I work with two dynamic case managers, Veronica Cruz and Stephanie Milfort. They provide counseling and support through our 24 hour hotline, the Safe Place network, and work directly in eight public schools in Bridgeport and Stratford. Their focus is building relationships with youth, teachers, and administration for early identification of young people who need help. Together we are continually looking for ways to reach as many youth as we can in the Greater Bridgeport area, to ensure they have the support they need when life gets tough.
