The ACFJC provides, under one roof, the services required by domestic violence victims and their families:
Crisis intervention, survivor support, and victim advocacy
Legal assistance services
Medical care and mental health counseling for victims and children impacted by family violence
Employment assistance, and information and referral to other community services
Law enforcement investigation and prosecution of offenders
In the past, domestic violence victims often had to seek help from a fragmented, disjointed system of separate agencies offering related by frequently uncoordinated services. Victims had to travel to several different places to get help, often with children, tell their stories many times to various people, causing frustration and exacerbating their trauma. Many gave up and never actually received the full range of services they need. The cost in suffering and lost human potential to our community was staggering. In response, ACFJC was created and now serves as a one-stop center based on a simple premise: if all services for victims are located in one place, survivors will more readily access and receive the critical help they need and in a timely fashion.
