Video - Family Justice Center Better Serves Victims of Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault
Middlesex County services for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault are scattered around the county. By housing resources in a coordinated centralized location, the Family Justice Center (FJC) will break down barriers between victims and services. FJCs increase safety for victims and children; reduce domestic violence homicides; and reduce recidivism among offenders. Women Aware looks forward to working with our partners to make the FJC a reality.
To help the Middlesex County community better understand what a Family Justice Center is, Women Aware produced a brief video. It features comments from the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office, the Alliance for HOPE International and Women Aware, and testimony from a father giving voice to his daughter’s experience as a survivor of domestic violence.
