The U.S. Department of Justice’s Office on Violence Against Women has awarded a two-year, $750,000 grant to the Crystal Judson Family Justice Center. The grant is designed to encourage arrest policies and enforcement of protection orders by providing funding for partner agencies doing victim advocacy work at the Family Justice Center, as well as for other programs and services for victims of domestic violence in the community.
“We are honored to have been selected through this highly competitive grant process,” said Susan Adams, the center’s director. “Funding from this grant will directly benefit the thousands of women and men seeking help at the Crystal Judson Family Justice Center each year.”
The Crystal Judson Family Justice Center provides comprehensive services for victims of domestic violence and their children. Services include safety planning and education, civil legal services, spiritual support, counseling, financial assistance and more.
