The strength of the Family Justice Center model lies in the partnerships it supports. In Guilford County, we are fortunate to have a wide range of partners who provide both on-site services through the FJC and a network of professionals and resources throughout our community.

Our partnerships and outreach in the community continue to expand and grow. Our biggest partner is the community at large. Together, we are making the community safer and giving hope to hurting individuals and families.
