The Family Justice Center Initiative

The Family Justice Center Initiative awarded more than $20 million since October 2003 to 15 communities across the country for the planning, development, and establishment of comprehensive domestic violence victim service and support centers. The Initiative is administered by the Office on Violence Against Women.

The goal of the Family Justice Center is to make a victim's search for help and justice more efficient and effective by bringing professionals who provide an array of services together under one roof.

The 15 PFJCI sites bring together advocates from non-profit groups, victim services organizations, law enforcement officers, probation officers, governmental victim assistants, forensic medical professionals, attorneys, chaplains, and representatives from community-based organizations into one centralized location. OVW, the Attorney General, and the Administration support this most critical initiative and continue to work toward the goal of eradicating violence against women.
