The New York City Family Justice Centers are a program of the Mayor’s Office to Combat Domestic Violence.
These Centers provide many criminal justice, civil legal, and social services in one location. Victims can meet with a prosecutor, speak with a trained counselor, and apply for housing and financial assistance in just one place. Children age 3 and up can play in a children’s room while their parents receive services.
Victims can get help at the Centers no matter what their immigration status or the language they speak. Staff can speak more than 30 languages and interpretation services are also available in many more languages.
The New York City Family Justice Centers provide criminal justice, civil legal and social services all in one location for domestic violence victims, elder abuse victims, and trafficking victims. For more information, download the full list of services (in PDF).
Each Center is open Monday through Friday, from 9am- 5pm. Clients may walk-in during these hours – you do not need to make an appointment.
