Did you know that October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month? In honor of this important month, this week we are featuring the Guilford County Family Justice Center for #FindHelpFriday!
The Family Justice Center is a one-stop-shop for all victims of domestic and sexual violence, as well as child abuse and elder abuse. In addition to the crisis services they provide, the FJC has a VOICES Advocacy Council comprised of survivors to support the community and education outreach efforts.
Resources that the FJC offers include legal support, assistance navigating the criminal justice system, law enforcement response and investigation, advocacy and safety planning, and access to shelter. They have a wide range of partner agencies on site who work in an integrating model to deliver such resources, as well as partner with other agencies to coordinate referrals for additional community resources.
To hear from FJC team members on what it’s like to receive services through the Center, check out this #FindHelpFriday video:
The FJC is very proud of the difference they have made in over 12,000 individuals and families since their opening in June 2015. Here at the Healthy Relationships Initiative, we are so grateful for the work being done at the Guilford County Family Justice Center!
