Family Justice Center of Washington County
Our mission is to work collaboratively with our community to provide a single location for prevention, intervention, healing and hope for survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, and child abuse in Washington County.
Bottom Line for Portland
Oregon seeing rates of domestic violence, sexual assault, and childhood trauma at rates higher than the national average. To address that alarming reality, and make breaking the cycle a real possibility, our community needed to come together. The Family Justice Center of Washington County was founded in 2018 to do just that.
The Family Justice Center is the backbone for a collaboration of 15 agencies in a single center dedicated to providing holistic, wrap-around services for the safety, healing, and hope for anyone impacted by violence and abuse in our community. Those partners include Domestic Violence Resource Center, Sexual Assault Resource Center, Safety Compass, Community Action, ODHS, Abuse Recovery Ministry Services, Family SkillBuilders, Beaverton, Hillsboro, and Washington County law enforcement and victim’s services, Washington County Circuit Court, Oregon Law Center, Victim Rights Law Center, Disability Rights Oregon, and Oregon Crime Victims Law Center.
For survivors, being able to come to one location with all the agencies collaborating and coordinated together to meet their needs, rather than having to go door to door or phone number to phone number alone, significantly reduces barriers, reduces trauma, and increases the survivors ability to break the cycle of violence.
Since opening our doors we have served over 12,000 survivors, and as a result of the impacts of the pandemic, we are on track to triple the amount of people we have served in our community.
With your support we will be able to continue providing coordinated, holistic, and trauma informed services to survivors and help us meet the expanding needs of our community.
“Thank you for giving me the incredible strength that I am not a victim, but I am a survivor.”
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
The Family Justice Center is deeply committed to reducing all barriers to survivors seeking services. We ensure staff and materials are bilingual and bi-cultural, provide culturally specific and responsive services, and actively examine our data and policies for disparities, inequitable impact, and barriers.
