The Guilford County Family Justice Center (FJC) is a new public safety initiative launched by Guilford County and a variety of community partners to assist victims of family violence.  The Guilford County FJC is a single point of access to services for victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, child abuse and neglect, and elder abuse. Under one roof, more than 17 agencies have come together to provide consolidated and coordinated legal, social, and health services to families in need. At the center, victims of family and sexual violence can come to one location to access a wide range of supportive resources, such as talking with a victim advocate, getting assistance with a restraining order, planning for their safety, talking to a law enforcement offer, meeting with a professional to discuss civil and criminal legal issues, receiving medical assistance, and gaining information on how to access shelter and other community resources. The center also is a resource for community outreach and education on issues of family violence.
If you are in immediate danger, please call 911, or Family Service of the Piedmont’s 24 hour Crisis Hotline at (336) 273-7273.
