A Chance to Shine

A Chance to Shine is an annual event to benefit all BHcare programs: The Umbrella Center for Domestic Violence Services, Hope Family Justice Center, Parent Child Resource Center, Alliance for Prevention and Wellness, BHcare’s mental health and substance use services. The event will raise funds and awareness for our life-saving programs and celebrate the amazing communities we serve the Greater New Haven area from the Shoreline to the Valley.


All proceeds will support the more than 12,500 adults, children and families struggling with mental health, substance use, domestic violence and other health-risk behaviors who receive BHcare’s comprehensive and integrated system of care with wrap-around services. In addition, we will shine a light on not only the services our friends, families and neighbors need but, on the survivors and thrivers who continue to persist and better their lives.
