Recent Success Story:

Katy came to the FJC after a very severe beating by her intimate partner. She had a long history of leaving the situation and then returning complicated by a substance abuse problem. She spent several months with us and during that time, she participated in an addiction treatment program, actively attended counseling, reconciled with her grown son with our assistance, moved into her own apartment and continues to participate in the Family Justice Program and is heavily involved in her addiction group! To quote Katy, “I have never felt so loved and supported in my life. I feel that I now have a real family!
