One Safe place, a Family Justice Center

Our purpose is to build a healthy community by providing hope and healing to people impacted by violence. Our mission is to weave together high quality, committed partners in a safe, collaborative center with comprehensive resources, to provide integrated services to people impacted by family violence, child abuse and sexual assault. This multi-agency, multi-disciplinary Family Justice Center strives to co-locate most services for victims of family violence, sexual assault, child abuse, and elder abuse under one roof in order to enable survivors and their children to come to one place for their service needs. By providing one location (One Safe Place), staffed with cross trained professionals, through a collaborative approach we will be able to reduce secondary traumatic experiences for victims, increase victim cooperation, and provide an  expert-investigatory approach to reports of violent crime within our community.
