Domestic Violence

The staff at The Center for Family Justice provides crisis intervention, risk and danger assessments, individual safety plans, and individual and group counseling for those in present or past abusive relationships.

Our counselors understand your needs and the circumstances involved in intimate partner violence. Our goals are to make you and your family safe, to help you rebuild your life, to build your self-esteem and empower you with the self-sufficiency skills you need to live a life free of abuse.

Domestic violence does not discriminate. It touches everyone, regardless of age, gender, race, culture, religion, socio-economic class or education.
