What is a Family Justice Center?
The Montgomery County Family Justice Center is one of only approximately 40 centers located in the United States and other countries. The concept is to create a family-friendly environment in which a multi-disciplinary team of professionals works together in one, centralized location to provide coordinated services to victims of family violence.
Prior to the Center’s opening in Montgomery County, victims of domestic violence would have to visit as many as 20 different agencies to receive vital services and assistance. With victims often escaping their situations with only the clothes on their back and no transportation, this made an already challenging situation nearly impossible.
The mission of the MCFJC Foundation is to support the important work of the Montgomery County Family Justice Center. A non-proft 501(c)(3) corporation, The MCFJC Foundation works to help strengthen the lives of families affected by domestic violence and relationship abuse.
We look forward to the day when the scourge of domestic violence – emotional, psychological and physical abuse – will no longer be a factor in the lives of our friends and neighbors in Montgomery County.
