What is a Family Justice Center?

A Family Justice Center is a collaborative service center where multiple agencies throughout a community provide co-located services in a welcoming environment to victims of interpersonal violence including intimate partner violence/domestic violence, sexual assault, child abuse, elder or dependent adult abuse, and human trafficking. Trained Navigators work one-on-one to help each family plan, decide on, and access the services they need. Centers focus on reducing the number of times survivors have to tell their story and the number of places victims must go for help, and on increasing access to services that support long-term safety and healing for victims and their children.

Partner agencies at a Family Justice Center may include:

  • Community-based rape crisis, domestic violence, and human trafficking advocates
  • Medical personnel
  • Mental health counselors
  • Family Justice lawyers
  • Victim-witness program staff
  • Social service agency staff members
  • Public assistance workers
  • Law enforcement personnel

And more . . .
