ACFJC Commended by DOJ for Helping & Protecting Women and Children May 29, 2015

Recently, a delegation from the Department of Justice - Office of Violence Against Women visited the Alameda County Family Justice Center to acknowledge and commend the considerable inroads the ACFJC has made in coordinating the response to violence against women in our region. The visit was in honor of the 20th Anniversary of the Violence Against Women Act and part of a national tour of outstanding facilities making a difference in the lives of women.

The group, led by Principal Deputy Director Bea Hanson, saw first-hand why the ACFJC is a model for excellence for centers around the nation. Alameda County District Attorney Nancy O’Malley and ACFJC Executive Director Cherri Allison led the delegation on a tour of the ACFJC facility, introducing our service partners and demonstrating the specific ways in which we serve victims of crime.
