Download Webinar Handouts

The Family Justice Center Movement has been growing across the country and around the world. Today, there are over 130 Family Justice/Multi-Agency (FJ/MA) Centers using a co-located service model across the United States with 50-75 in active development. Family Justice Centers have demonstrated their positive impact on collaboration and coordination, increasing hope in the lives of survivors and increasing access to services for survivors and their children.

In this webinar series, Casey Gwinn and Gael Strack, co-founders of Alliance for HOPE International, provide an overview of the Family Justice Center framework, including what a Family Justice Center (FJC) is, how it works, guiding principles, best practices, core partners and services, how to get started, the history and the state of the Family Justice Center movement today, and how FJCs are holistically addressing the needs of survivors and their children. Casey and Gael share insights on how to work collaboratively in a multi-disciplinary team to provide services to victims of Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault, Human Trafficking, and Elder Abuse.
