W&FL Vision Statement
The Women & Family Life Center: Inspiring women and families to explore the endless possibilities in their lives, make meaningful connections with others, and create lives filled with promise.

Services We Offer
The Women & Family Life Center celebrated its 23rd year in 2014. Originally run from the basement at a local church, WFLC now conducts business from a historic home near the Guilford Green. Our facilities include administrative offices and program space in a converted 220 year-old home, as well as large program space in a beautifully converted barn. The facilities were purchased in 1999 through the generous support of individual donors in the community.

Current programs and activities fall under one of four distinct but complementary categories:

  • Education
  • Enrichment & Wellness
  • Support
  • Referral

Our goal is to provide a safe and intimate setting for women and families to face changes and challenges in their lives with grace, dignity and community support.

Services at the Center are available to women and families from any town, though we primarily serve Branford, Guilford and Madison. Most of our programs are offered free of charge and scholarships are available for those that have a fee.

Our space is available for rental to the community. We can accommodate groups up to 20 comfortably. Please contact Mary Beeman at 203-453-6699 or via This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. l for rental fee information.
