(WTNH)- Family Justice Centers (FJC) use a coordinated approach to offer services designed to break the cycle of violence, in a safe place, under one roof. Police, prosecutors, civil/legal providers, counselors and client advocates work together to streamline how they help people heal while reducing costs. They serve six Fairfield County towns: Bridgeport, Easton, Fairfield, Monroe, Stratford and Trumbull.
Although their name changed, we continue with the work we have provided for 12 decades: providing free, confidential, bilingual crisis services that help all people plagued by domestic and sexual violence restore their lives, and educating our communities to prevent future abuse. It is the comprehensive services our partners are providing that are streamlining the road to healing and self-sufficiency.
Join them on Tuesday, September 19, 2017 for their 20th Anniversary of Speaking of Women. This year’s event features 60 Minutes Correspondent and co-host of CBS News special Person to Person, Lara Logan.
