Connecticut’s Family Day was established by state law in 1997 (Public Act 97-288). Family Day shall be observed every year during the month of September with activities to be held at the State Capitol and elsewhere. The theme of Connecticut’s Family Day, "Valuing Connecticut’s Families…It’s Everybody’s Business" remains the same so that we continue to reinforce the message that families are Connecticut’s greatest resource and that all sectors of Connecticut’s society have the privilege and obligation to honor them.

The Safe Harbor Project: is a collaboration between the Department of Children and Families (DCF) and True Colors, Inc. This initiative was created by the Commissioner of DCF in September 2001 to educate against homophobia, gender bias and racism while working to create a world where youth, adults and families of all sexual orientations and gender identities are valued and affirmed, and to implement affirming and unbiased, culturally competent, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning & Intersex (LGBTQI) service trainings for foster and adoptive parents, social workers, child care and community providers surrounding the issues and problems specific to youth and families with inherent sexuality issues.
