Family Justice Center

Did you know that a typical victim of family violence no longer has to visit over 23 different locations to receive all the support and legal services currently available in Sonoma County? This has been a huge burden for families dealing with family violence issues. This scattering of services makes it difficult and discouraging for victims, and exposes them to prolonged jeopardy and increased risk of further violence. Partnering with the community, the Family Justice Center Sonoma County (FJCSC) seeks to empower family violence victims to live free from violence and abuse by providing wrap-around services to victims through a single access point.

The Family Justice Center Sonoma County is located at 2755 Mendocino Avenue, Santa Rosa. Our Partner agency Community Based Organizations and the District Attorney’s Office Advocate staff are co-located to support family violence victims and their children with comprehensive services. The Santa Rosa Police Department Domestic Violence/Sexual Assault Team and the Sheriff’s Office Domestic Violence/Sexual Assault Units are co-located partners of the FJCSC which further strengthens our ability to better serve victims of family violence in Sonoma County. We are looking forward to welcoming the Redwood Children’s Center which serves children under the age of 18 in mid 2012.
