What is a Family Justice Center?

The Family Justice Center (the “Center”) is a warm and welcoming one-stop center for victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, child abuse, elder abuse and human trafficking. The Center is where families come first. We bring resources to meet the needs of children, youth and families impacted by interpersonal violence, recognizing that family violence greatly impacts children’s healthy development including their emotional, mental and physical health.

Help through a single door.

When survivors of interpersonal violence seek help, they are often frustrated by a fractured system. They may have to travel to multiple locations and tell their stories repeatedly. National estimates show that victims may have to access as many as 32 different agencies for assistance. These hurdles can discourage their efforts and cause many people to simply stop seeking help. The Center brings public and private partners together under one roof to provide wrap-around services. For families seeking services, coming to one location is faster, more immediately helpful, and far less expensive than traveling to multiple locations throughout the county. Victims no longer need to tell their story multiple times, papers are filed right away and cases are completed more quickly, with the ultimate result that families can be safer sooner.

WHO WE SERVE

What does 
Interpersonal Violence (IPV) look like?

Interpersonal Violence is violence which occurs within a relationship between indiividuals.  It can take many different forms and look different across cultures, communities, and families.  Everyone deserves safe, healthy, and loving relationships.  If you find yourself in a dangerous or violent relationship, the Family Justice Center can help.

What Would the World Be Like Without Domestic Violence?

If domestic violence reflects a world based in oppression, dominance, and exploitation, then a world without domestic violence will reflect an honoring of the sacredness of all beings and relationships and harmony in those relationships. This way of being will not only shape our relationships to each other but also our relationships to the non-human natural world.
