Family Justice Center Logo

We are bringing a Family Justice Center to Kern County. A Family Justice Center is a “one-stop shop” for victims of domestic violence, where victims and their children can go to receive free services. This progressive model brings together service providers that have been operating as stand alones that would now be coming together in one convenient location. Services provided will include: advocacy, case management, restraining orders, counseling, legal assistance, Cal/Works and Cash Aid, law enforcement and prosecution, immigration assistance, safety planning, child support services, and more.
