The President’s Family Justice Center Initiative Best Practices

 In October, 2003, President George W. Bush announced the creation of the President’s Family Justice Center Initiative. The $20 million Initiative created specialized “one stop shop,” co-located, multi-disciplinary service centers for victims of family violence and their children. The centers, commonly referred to as “family justice centers,” are based on the San Diego Family Justice Center model (; they are designed to reduce the number of places victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and elder abuse must go to receive needed services.
