Brief Description

In October 2002, the FJC was launched as a public safety initiative by the City of San Diego under the leadership of the City Attorney's Office and the San Diego Police Department. The FJC is a "one-stop" help center that provides the majority of services needed by victims of family violence. Under one roof, 25 agencies have come together to provide medical, legal, and social services to victims of domestic violence, elder abuse, and child abuse. Since opening, the FJC has effectively engaged law enforcement, prosecutors, medical professionals, clergy, social service workers, volunteers, hospitals, and shelters to provide comprehensive services to approximately 23,000 victims of family violence and their children.
