Program Helps Families Involved in Violence-Related Court Cases

Department of Justice
The Justice for Families Program seeks to improve the response of the civil and criminal justice system to families with a history of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, or stalking, or in cases involving allegations of child sexual abuse. The program supports activities for improving the capacity of courts and communities to respond to families affected by the targeted crimes, including court-based and court-related programs, supervised visitation and safe exchange by and between parents, training for people who work with families in the court system, civil legal services, and the provision of resources in juvenile court matters. The application deadline is January 8, 2019.
