The Knoxville Family Justice Center is the hub of domestic violence services and support in Knoxville and Knox County. This “one stop shop” center provides co-located services for victims and their children, including legal help and social services. Family justice centers are being replicated across the nation and around the world.
Their centralized, comprehensive service delivery model reduces the number of places victims must go to get help and the number of times they must tell their story. Victims who once had to go to up to 20 different locations to get all the services they needed—often using public transportation and with young children in tow—now only have to go to one place to access those same services in just 2-3 hours. This allows victims to get the help they need in the easiest, fastest, safest way possible.
