What is a Family Justice Center?
A family justice center is the bringing together of a multi-agency network, under one roof, dedicated to providing coordinated services to victims of domestic violence and their children. This model has proven successful across the country and has been designated as a best-practice model for domestic violence intervention and prevention by the U.S. Department of Justice.

Child Witness Program
When a child witnesses violence, it is emotionally painful and distressing, with lasting mental and physical effects. This helps children between the ages of 3 and 16 that have witnessed a traumatic event. Early intervention can help end the cycle of violence with young children. If your child has witnessed violence, please contact our Child Witness Coordinator to discuss positive ways you can support your child.
