Prince George's County Family Justice Center

The Prince George’s County Family Justice Center (PGCFJC), an initiative of the Circuit Court, is a multi-disciplinary service center. The PGCFJC provides a full array of co-located services for survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, human trafficking and elder abuse. Identified as a best-practice, this new and innovative model enables local government and private community based organizations to collaborate and provide coordinated case management services designed to address the immediate and more systemic social welfare needs frequently encountered by survivors in the aftermath of abuse. Services are provided in a coordinated, collaborative and holistic model by a team of twenty-two (22) on-site partners.  This approach enhances a survivor’s access to critical resources and streamlines the process by bringing services together in a practical way, one that makes the path to safety for survivors and families more clear.
