Community Partners Enjoy Inside Look at Family Justice Center
On December 3, 2021, Women Aware kicked off its 14th Annual Gift Shop for clients with community partners from the Middlesex County Board of Commissioners, Middlesex County Sheriff’s Department, Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office and Middlesex County Family Court at the new Family Justice Center on Bayard Street, New Brunswick. Partners toured the Family Justice Center space; enjoyed the opportunity to speak with Women Aware Board members and advocates; and learned more about the Center’s goal to reduce domestic violence homicides, and increase the safety and confidentiality of domestic violence survivors and their children in collaboration with co-located victim services agencies. The FJC will help survivors and their families get the resources and support they need at one location.
The Annual Gift Shop for clients served by Women Aware in Middlesex County is a treasured tradition generously supported by friends, donors, businesses, volunteer organizations, community partners, Board members and staff, who donate gift cards to bring smiles and hope to families moving beyond abuse. To date, Women Aware has collected over $7,000 in gift cards.
