The Center for Family Justice operates a 15-bed domestic violence transitional safe home for adults and children fleeing their abusive situation. Our Crisis Counselor/Advocates offer support in a secure, non-judgmental environment where families, individuals and children can safety plan, access appropriate services and resources, and work towards an independent-living situation.
Our transitional home offers up to 60 days of emergency shelter for men, women and children. Residents receive advocacy and counseling services from the staff both at CFJ for Family Justice and in the residence.
